Hello all,
I am a dental technician from Israel and I am thinking of immigrating to the US.

I have a certificate dental technician and have worked as a dental technician for the past 10 years.
I would like to know where I can find information about CDT in the US.

Is my certificate enough to work and open a dental Lab?
Do I need to have an exam to have a new certificate in the US?

Is there any difference between states for having a CDT?

Thank you,
Dean T.

Most states require nothing other than normal business stuff. Some require a cdt on staff, some require a yearly licensing fee. Each state will be different and you'll need to check with their board of dentistry on specifics.

CDT is not a school degree here, it is a recognition of knowledge and practial ability in the area(s) you test.

I’m an ortho tech in wa state. Self taught. Mostly lingual arches, hyraxes, band and loops and night guards with acrylic build up..those are like milk shakes…(best hand made). with acrylic buildup. Never required credentials, I love Israel and would stay there if I were you. :)

Israel is lovely.. when you are a tourist haha
Its very expansive everywhere here and taxes are very high.
Israeli people are aggressive.
For our proffesional, Doctors behave disrespectful to technicians( majority, not all) always want cheap and best quality and sell the technician for 5 usd.
I feel like trying somewhere new :)
Thanks for replying.

Hi, in that case you could easily find employment in the pacific northwest where I’m from, Get your foot through the door and work yourself up, try a website called indeed.com. We hire through them, Free, plenty of positions and you can engage the employer remotely with questions Seattle Washington area, we have beautiful summers but in the winter not so much. Shalom
