The Story of the Alpha Dental Ceramics Training Center

The Alpha Dental Ceramics Training Center was created to answer the question:
How do we maintain a consistent level of high quality lab work?

The answer became clear: to train every technician, even experienced technicians, to follow the same technical protocol. Every technician at Alpha Dental Ceramics must successfully complete two courses of instruction:

First the technician must learn with absolute certainty fundamental dental anatomy and the concepts of oral function. Second, upon passing this course, the technician moves on to intensive training in a chosen specialty, such as ceramics or waxing full crowns.

During specialized training, the technician is guided by our Director of Training. Each specific step in the process of making a restoration is taught in minute detail using video DVD's, guidebooks, drill books and hands-on work. For example, once a ceramist has passed both the anatomical and functional concepts training, they move on to learning the individual “micro-steps” in applying, contouring, staining and glazing a ceramic crown. Quite literally, the technician is drilled so that the steps they follow are the same, from case to case.

The result: restorations are consistently correct in form and function. With a crown, our objective is to create a restoration that looks like a beautiful, real tooth, fits seamlessly and functions properly.

How Many Dental Laboratories Have a Clearly Defined Technical Policy or a Training Academy?

The answer: Very few. Alpha Dental Ceramics is proud to be a leader in setting technical standards and in developing well-trained dental technicians.

Beyond the Training Center : Advanced Training at Alpha Dental Ceramics

In response to the rise in availability of esthetic restorative materials such as Empress, and the general increase of patients desiring more attractive smiles, Alpha Dental Ceramics sought training facilities that offer advanced and continuing training. Our fixed technicians have completed intensive training at the Pankey Institute, the Las Vegas Institute, the Tanaka Dental Technology Institute, Pac Live, PTC and Ivoclar.

We enthusiastically support ongoing, advanced education. By traveling to outside venues and through our Learning Center , we offer our laboratory professionals the best in advanced technical and clinical instruction.
