Introduction (You can download our introduction, PDF file)

        The department of dental technology aims to cultivate professionals who are able to skillfully make various dental prosthesis or appliances. The numbers of graduates have increased yearly up to 92%, those who have passed national exams and who have been registered as certified dental technicians in 2015. With the most up to date facilities for education, the department provides courses focusing on both theory and practice. We have strong collaborate ties with the industry of dental technology, and there are approximately 100 dental labs where students can go on placement.      

       The oral medicine has developed and improved day by day, the labor division is more and more subdivisible, and the dental technology has played an indispensable role in the system of oral medical treatment. In view of the lack of educational resources for cultivating the professionals of dental technology, we established the department of dental technology in 2006, expecting to develop the excellent and practical professional technical staff of dental technology for the circles of oral medicine.

Dental Technology
       Dental Technology is both a science and an art. Since each dental patient's needs are different, the duties of a dental technician are comprehensive and varied. Although dental technicians seldom work directly with patients, except under the direction of a licensed dentist, they are valuable members of the dental care team. They work directly with dentists by following detailed written instructions and using impressions (molds) of the patient's teeth or oral soft tissues to create:
1.Full dentures for patients who are missing all of their teeth
2.Removable partial dentures or fixed bridges for patients who are missing only one or a few teeth
3.Crowns, which are caps for teeth that are designed to restore their original size and shape
4.Veneers that enhance the esthetics and function of the patient
5.Orthodontic appliances and splints to help straighten and protect teeth
6.Orthodontic appliances or temp crown... by 3D Printing to protect teeth

       Dental technicians work with a variety of materials including waxes, plastics, precious and non-precious alloys, stainless steel, a variety of porcelains and composites or polymer glass combinations. Many technicians acquire skill in the use of sophisticated instruments and equipment while performing laboratory procedures. It is important for the technician to help create tooth replacements that are both attractive and functional.
