Malta Dental Technologists Association

Welcome to the

Malta Dental Technologists Association

  Website!

The MDTA originated in 1992 in order to provide a platform for registered dental technologists in Malta

who felt the need to exchange ideas and ensure their progression in the dental team.

To-date there are 50 registrants/licenced with the Council for the Professions Complimentary to Medicine (CPCM), 21 of whom are affiliated to the MDTA.

The Committee is made up of a President, Secretary, Treasurer and two members. At the Annual General Meeting an Education sub-Committee of three members, is simultaneously elected.
