The University of the East (UE) Manila scored top school honors as the Philippines gained six new Dental Technologists after three days of grueling examinations that started December 10 for the written phase and the 2-day practical phase held from December 11-12, 2019.
The Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) announced on Friday that 6 out of 76 examinees passed the Dental Technologist Licensure Examination given by the Board of Dentistry in Manila this December 2019.
UE received the highest passing rating in the PRC results for the Dental Technologist board exam released December 13 and took 2 spots out of the 6 board passers.
The successful examinees are Mary Lyne De Guzman Aure, Ian Lopez Butcon, Bon Bryan Azotillo Campana, Romela Joy Bueron Fabrigas, Brendan Jakob Ordoñez Francisco, and Cristine Dale Domingo Yamat.
Dental technologist or dental laboratory technicians are considered members of the dental team who, upon prescription/instruction from a dental clinician, are asked to constructs custom-made restorative and dental appliances.
There are four major disciplines within dental technology. These are:
- prosthesis including crowns, bridges and implants;
- removable prosthesis, like complete dentures and removable partial dentures;
- orthodontics and auxiliaries, including orthodontic appliances and mouth guards, in some countries they also do
- maxillofacial prosthesis, including ocular prosthesis and craniofacial prosthesis.
The dentist communicates with the dental technologist with prescriptions, drawings and measurements taken from the patient.
The most important aspect of this is a dental impression into which the technologist flows a gypsum dental stone to create a replica of the patient’s anatomy known as a dental cast. A technologist can then use this cast for the construction of custom appliances.
UE was also in the top 10 of the recent Civil Engineer board exams.
UE students have also excelled in film competions in Europe, U.S., and Asia.
