Department of Dental Technology

Welcome to the department of Dental Technology

Dental Technology is a specialty in the field of dentistry that deals with the treatment and rehabilitation of the tissues of the oral cavity and the face. It encompasses the design and fabrication of various dental prostheses and corrective appliances such as dentures, braces and crowns and bridges.

Training of dental technologists at KMTC dates back to 1968 when the first three students were admitted to train in the department.  We have designed the program to produce highly skilled Dental Technologists, who are able to design, fabricate and fit dental restorations, prostheses and appliances.

The department also seeks to enlarge understanding of new and developing areas of dental technology.  In addition, our training seeks to enhance relationships within the dental teams in which our students work upon their successful graduation by instilling the importance of teamwork in them.

We are happy to have you enrol with us as we seek to make a difference in the lives of those we serve. We welcome you to take up this journey with us.
