New horizons in military dental laboratory training.


Dental laboratory training has taken on a new look for the military. As a result of numerous cost analyses Air Force, Navy, and Army training has been combined under one roof. All three services have molded their courses together to form a tri-service training program at Sheppard AFB in Wichita Falls, Texas. Graduation of the first class occurred on June 24, 1998. A 6 month basic course, as well as several advanced concept courses are offered by the program. Instructors from all branches of service are represented on staff to teach. The facility is state of the art and was built in 1991 to provide for Air Force Dental Training. Downsizing of today's military has resulted in dental training coming together to provide one quality course to military individuals qualified to enroll, thus ensuring tomorrow's laboratory technicians will be as qualified as those in the past.
