The Foundation for Dental Laboratory Technology announced that Charles E. McClemens, CDT, TE, of Eau Claire, Wisconsin, has been awarded the 2016 Kois Center Education Grant.
The Kois Center, along with the Foundation for Dental Laboratory Technology, created this grant in order to support the Foundation’s purpose by making higher level education more accessible to dental technicians working in a laboratory setting. McClemens will be awarded one seat in the Biomechanics I & II course at no charge, thanks to the generosity of the Kois Center. The charge for such a course would typically retail for $9,995.
“This is the second year the Foundation has had the opportunity to offer the Kois Center Education Grant and we received double the amount of applications this year than last year. It’s great to see so many individuals interested in advancing their education and even better to be able to play a part in helping them get there. We are forever grateful for the Kois Center’s dedication to the Foundation and the future of dental laboratory technology, and we are beyond excited to announce that they have committed to continuing the grant next year,” said Foundation Chair Leon Hermanides, CDT.
