The Foundation for Dental Laboratory Technology (The Foundation) announced the winners of the first-ever 2016 Custom Automated Prosthetics (CAP) Education Grant: Christopher Eric Nelson, CDT (Dunedin, Florida); Iwona Alicja Villa, CDT (Westminster, California); Joshua Campbell (Tampa, Florida); Lyudmila Kovalenko (Lone Tree, Colorado); Megan Johnson (Ottawa, Illinois); and Thin Sandar Khine, CDT (Rosemead, CA).
Custom Automated Prosthetics, LLC (CAP), along with The Foundation, created this grant in order to support the Foundation’s purpose by making higher-level education more accessible. Thanks to the generosity of CAP, each individual will have their tuition fee for a 1- to 2-day or full-day course at either the Florida or Massachusetts location covered as part of this grant.
“With a myriad of classes available and classes being added frequently, grant recipients have a wide selection to choose from and can ultimately take the course that fits their needs and interests,” said Foundation Chair, Jeff Stronk. “We at the Foundation are grateful beyond words for the opportunity to further educate individuals on the changes going on in the industry today,”
CAP, a subsidiary of Henry Schein, Inc., located in Clearwater, FL and headquartered in Stoneham, MA, helps dental laboratories navigate through the digital transition that is occurring in dental technology today through CAD/CAM products, milling services, supplies and education. The Foundation’s purpose is to advance the profession of dental laboratory technology by addressing industry-driven needs and providing solutions relevant to dental technicians.
