The National Association of Dental Laboratories is the unified voice of the dental laboratory industry supporting dentistry and serving the public interest by promoting high standards for the advancement of dental technology. We are active members and DSG leadership has served and continues to serve in a variety of positions.
The Dental Appliance Manufacturing Audit System (DAMAS) is an internationally recognized quality assurance credential that ensures adherence to FDA standards.
Certified Dental Technicians must be able to prove their knowledge in all aspects of dental technology as well as excellence in applied skills in one or more of the specialty areas, in both written and practical format. Like AGD credit, maintaining certification requires annual continuing education in the areas of scientific knowledge, health and safety management and professional development.
