Production Standards and Production Pay

The need for qualified managers in the profession has long been identified as one of the top five issues impacting the dental laboratory industry. NADL University was developed to meet those growing educational needs of today's dental laboratory managers. The in-person program allows eligible professionals to earn a Certificate in Dental Laboratory Management during an intensive course of study. While NADL U graduates attest that the three-day interactive educational experience was invaluable, NADL recognizes that not everyone has the opportunity to attend the meeting. In response, NADL U has now come to you.
