Heraeus Kulzer extends dental lab foundation support

Heraeus Kulzer's Precious Metal Refining Division will support the Foundation for Dental Laboratory Technology (FDLT) with a donation this year, the third consecutive year the company has made such a donation.

The nonprofit organization was founded in 2008 with funding from the National Association of Dental Laboratories (NADL) to advance the profession of dental laboratory technology by developing educational curriculums and programs for dental technicians and other members of the dental team.

In 2011, Heraeus made its first charitable contribution to the foundation based on the value of refined scrap from all NADL/FDLT member laboratories that used Heraeus' refining services.

The foundation provides scholarships to interested candidates for advanced education or certification, and it makes keystone grants of up to $5,000 per year to accredited educational institutions to integrate new technology into their programs. The grants are also available to nonaccredited schools to help fund accreditation. The foundation also develops Web-based educational tools for dental technicians.
