The DTA represent the best interests of all UK dental technologists with one voice, whether qualified or in training and providing lifelong learning opportunities, advice, guidance and support to our members.

Dental Technology is in exciting times with the emergence of digital dental technology and clinical dental technology, but there is also an ever-increasing number of challenges - not least the changes to ECPD and MHRA regulations from MDD to MDR. We keep members up to date on all the important information. Our voluntary management team regularly meet and continually influence and raise the profile of dental technology with decision makers including regulators, educational providers and various groups and we continue to be actively involved in various National initiatives, consultations, campaigns and activities.


We provide members with a one stop shop including a plethora of benefits  and packages to suit and support students throughout their education; newly qualified individuals taking the next step in starting their career; and experienced professionals, making it easy for you to stay compliant no matter where you are on your journey.
