The Foundation for Dental Laboratory Technology (Foundation) is a non-profit 501c (3) organization. The purpose of the Foundation is to advance the profession of dental laboratory technology by addressing industry driven needs and providing solutions that are relevant and accessible to dental technicians and other members of the dental team.
The Kois Center is located on the shore of Lake Union in the heart of Seattle, Washington and offers a didactic and clinical program, featuring a comprehensive Kois course curriculum of 9 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.
Recognizing the need for increased accessibility to higher education in dental laboratory technology, the Kois Center and the Foundation have partnered to bring you the Kois Center Education Grant.
The 2020 Kois Center Education Grant will award one (1) seat in the Biomechanics I & 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.
