Kois Center Education Grant


The Kois Center is located on the shore of Lake Union in the heart of Seattle, Washington, offering a didactic and clinical program, featuring a comprehensive Kois course curriculum of nine courses, with the latest advances in esthetics, implant and restorative dentistry. The Kois Center uses the best and most current technology to facilitate and support the learning environment.

Grant Overview

Recognizing the need for increased accessibility to higher education in dental laboratory technology, the Kois Center and the Foundation for Dental Laboratory Technology have partnered to bring you the Kois Center Education Grant.

The Kois Center Education Grant will award one (1) seat in the Biomechanics I and II course at no charge. The charge for such a course would typically retail for $9,995; however, due to the generosity of the Kois Center, the recipient of this grant will have their tuition fee waived. Additional course information can be accessed by clicking here.
