National Association of Dental Laboratories to Be Featured in Public Television Documentary Educating Viewers about the Origin and Materials Used in Dental Restorations

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (BUSINESS WIRE) The National Association of Dental Laboratories (NADL) and GTS Education Inc. announced today that “The Global Learning Series,” an education-focused television program distributed to public television, has invited NADL to be featured in an episode called “Understanding Dentistry.”

The program will educate viewers about a patient’s right to know where their dental restoration was manufactured and the credentials of the manufacturer. Nearly 25 percent of all dental restorations used by U.S. patients are made in foreign countries by dental technicians who likely lack recognized certifications. The show will be distributed this winter and spring to public television stations and cable television stations throughout the country as well as abroad through VOA Television.

“On behalf of ‘The Global Learning Series’, we applaud The National Association of Dental Laboratories for their leadership in formally asking the Food & Drug Administration to improve regulation of dental restorations to protect patient safety,” said John McGuire, Senior Producer of Programming for “The Global Learning Series.” “We’re pleased to partner with NADL to bring a visually and emotionally compelling program to the medical community, patient public and policymakers about this critical public health issue.”
