NBC Implements Changes in 2017
2017 CDT of the Year
Starting in 2009, the National Board for Certification in Dental Laboratory Technology (NBC) began the ‘CDT of the Year’ awards program. This came about as a way for NBC to recognize and honor the individuals who stand out in the industry. Each fall, the NBC sends out a call for nominations for this prestigious award, NBC receives nominations with heartfelt words of support. The individuals that are nominated come from various backgrounds that include educators, laboratory owners, technicians and more.
Nominees are asked to submit additional information including years in the laboratory profession, areas of specialization, examples of dedication to their field, and community service. CDT of the year looks for someone who not only strives for excellence in their career but also serves their community. NBC is excited to present the 2017 CDT of the Year award to Mike Abraham, Master CDT.
Mike Abraham, Master CDT, has been in the dental laboratory technology industry for over 40 years. He currently is the owner of Dent-Tech Dental Lab. Mike earned his Associate Degree in Dental Technology at Texas State Technical College in Waco Texas where he became a Master CDT in all six specialties earning his first CDT certification in 1994. Less than 1% of CDTs can call themselves a master CDT and far fewer have mastered all six specialties.
Abraham is actively involved in the Dental Technology Community and frequently travels nationwide as an examiner administering practical CDT examinations. Mike served as president of Associates Dental lab of Arkansas for two years and is actively involved in his community. Mike has worked with both Donated Dental Services of Arkansas and Donated Dental Services of Mississippi and is an avid supporter of VFW 3030 a foundation supporting Veterans.
“Our profession is lucky to have such a hard working, caring, gifted technician and lab owner. He exemplifies the best in your organization and is deserving of this outstanding honor.” – Alvin W. Neff, DDS, FAGD, FICD
Congratulations again Mike Abraham, Master CDT, Our 2017 CDT of the Year!
