 NADL Launches New Occupational Awareness Video

Posted on November 30, 2022

NADL is excited to share the launch of a new video that aims to inform and drive interested people into the dental laboratory profession in ongoing efforts to ensure that dental laboratories can meet growing demand for services from their customers.

This new video titled, Becoming a Dental Laboratory Technician, was posted on the NADL YouTube page at the end of October, and as of the end of November, already has 14,000 views. This video is also being shared across multiple social media platforms including Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and TikTok.

Watch the video here: https://youtu.be/M48WGcTnOxA

As part of NADL’s new strategic plan, the organization is committed to increasing occupational awareness in an effort to help the industry better fill its hiring needs. In addition to this video, NADL has revamped the dental laboratory technician career information page at https://nadl.org/career/.

Hiring new employees continues to be a major challenge for dental laboratories. This challenge, however, is not unique to the dental laboratory industry. According to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, October 2022 data shows that there are over 10 million job openings in the U.S.—but only around six million unemployed workers.1

NADL is working to help our members by creating a vibrant dental laboratory profession through increasing industry awareness, building community and delivering critical resources. Occupational awareness will continue to be a priority in 2023 and NADL is dedicating considerable time and resources to these efforts.

More information will be shared regarding the NADL efforts related to occupational awareness across NADL’s communication mediums.
