Certifications

Certified Dental Laboratory

  • Certification in the dental laboratory profession is voluntary. Laboratories who have taken the extra steps to become certified represent the top of their field. CDLs have documented not only compliance with peer-defined standards but a desire to stay in the forefront of the industry. A Certified Dental Laboratory takes pride in the quality and professionalism of its products and services. The CDL is recognized by the National Association of Dental Laboratories (NADL), the American Dental Association (ADA) and the American College of Prosthodontists (ACP). It also receives outstanding support and participation from U.S. military services.

  • The National Board for Certification of Dental Laboratories has established specific standards for personnel skills, laboratory facilities and infection control in dental laboratories. Achieving and maintaining certification offers a laboratory a nationally recognized credential attesting to compliance with competency standards that are widely accepted by dentistry and dental technology.
