What is a dental prosthetist?
You do not need a referral to see a Dental Prosthetist. He or she is an oral care professional who has completed extensive training to become firstly a dental technician, who works by referral from a Dentist, and finally a Dental Prosthetist who is registered to consult patients directly. A Dental Prosthetist is registered to undertake the manufacture of complete dentures, partial dentures and mouthguards.
When you put yourself in the care of a Dental Prosthetist you can be secure in the knowledge that you are being looked after by a health professional with the most comprehensive knowledge of advanced techniques, new materials and the latest world trends in the field of denture prosthetics.
Under the new national laws Dental Prosthetists are able to practice in every State/ Territory in Australia.
