A brand new centre for dental sciences is set to open at Barnet and Southgate College in September in partnership with The University of Bolton.
The Dental Technology Centre will open as part of a refurbishment of the college’s Southgate campus and will include state-of-the-art resources including three specialist laboratories with the latest industry-standard equipment.
College principal David Byrne said: “The state-of-the-art training centre moves away from the messy artisan craft of dental manufacturing to the cleaner tech driven world of CAD design and 3D Printing.
“We’re extremely proud to be leading on this unique project which will change technical education within the dental industry in London, bringing it firmly into the 21st century and beyond.”
Head of the Centre of Dental Sciences at the University of Bolton, Robert Biggs said: “The Barnet and Southgate College partnership will deliver much needed support for dental employers and educators in the region.
“The range and speciality of courses focuses on niche skills and training, which is long overdue in the dental technology sector. Together we aim to provide the most advanced, employment focused dental education in the UK for dental care professionals.”
