Welcome to NADL's Learner Community!

The National Association of Dental Laboratories (NADL) is the national trade association representing the interests of individuals and businesses involved in the commercial dental laboratory industry. Through our sister organizations, the National Board for Certification in Dental Laboratory Technology and the Foundation for Dental Laboratory Technology, our combined efforts are working diligently every day to advance the role of the dental technician, foster an environment of formal education and administer professional standards for certification.

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. NADL accomplishes this by providing programs, services and networking opportunities to meet the evolving technical, educational, professional and business needs of dental laboratories.

In an effort to meet your business needs, we have created NADL's Learner Community - where you can access courses to meet your educational needs at your convenience—anytime, anywhere.
