Online Laboratory Degrees and Careers

People with laboratory training work behind the scenes in virtually every aspect of the healthcare field. Dental laboratory technicians, for example, fill prescriptions from dentists for crowns, dentures and other dental prosthetics. Dentists send the lab technicians the molds of patients' mouths. The technicians, who have specialized dental laboratory school training create the prosthetic teeth, caps and crowns that are common in dental procedures.

Dental laboratory technicians must have some artistic capability, as well as manual dexterity to be able to capture the precise details of each unique piece they create. While most dental laboratory technicians learn their craft on the job, at a dental laboratory school, you learn not only oral anatomy, but dental materials science as well as ethics. These programs at a dental laboratory school may also provide a supervised internship with an experienced dental lab technician, where you can hone your skills and learn the trade from a professional currently working in the field.
