What is an Oral Health Therapist?

An Oral Health Therapist is a dual qualified dental therapist and hygienist. They provide oral health assessment, diagnosis, treatment, management and preventative services for children and adolescents, an if, like myself, educated and trained in a program of study approved by the National Board, for adults of all ages.

Their scope may include restorative/fillings treatment, tooth removal, oral health promotion, periodontal/gum treatment, and other oral care to promote healthy oral behaviours.

Oral Health Therapists may only work within a structured professional relationship with a dentist, as in the case with Nick and I.
