"Thank you so much to all the laboratory owners, technicians, manufacturers, and suppliers who have donated to this fund, so that I can finally fulfill my dream and goal of becoming a CDT. I cried tears of joy when I opened this bubble mailer and found out that I won the scholarship. It has been my aspiration for a long time, and thanks to you, I am one step closer to the goal."
Charles Robert Meister, Jr.; 2015 Pillar Scholarship Winner
"Because of its ability to help fund educational experiences, the Foundation has played a crucial role in helping technicians obtain a higher level of training and bring educational opportunities within reach for us. Their relationship with the NADL and the NBC has brought awareness to the complexity of training technicians and the valuable impact it has had on the technician community. With the state of our industry now, the Foundation should be honored for their efforts and resources in helping technicians succeed."
Chris Roman, CDT; 2014 Fulcrum Grant Winner
"Keeping at the forefront of technology and education does not come at a low cost but it is worth the investment. Thank you personally for your generosity. Without scholarship patrons willing to support dental technician education, students such as myself would be unable to advance within the profession. My educational pursuits would not be possible without generous support from scholarship sponsors like your organization. Thank you for enabling this opportunity!"
Odena Chinchilla, CDT; 2016 PTC John Ness Memorial Education Grant Winner
"I would like to thank the Foundation for Dental Laboratory Technology for this once in a lifetime opportunity to gain the knowledge from a world-reowned educational institution that teaches the latest advances in esthetic, implant and restorative dentistry through didactic and clinical delivery. Without question, these courses were eye opening and I learned a lot. I expect to incorporate this knowledge into the dental laboratory technology curriculum taught at New York City College of Technology."

"The Grants were a financial godsend to help us advance our plans. Funds allowed us to purchase laboratory supplies to support additional laboratory projects for our students. For example, additional silicone rings for an added pressable ceramic e-Max laboratory project for senior students allowing each student to experience the project in a timely manner."
