Dental Therapists

Dental therapists are registered dental professionals  who have had extensive dental school training to carry out certain items of  dental treatment under prescription from a dentist. Dental therapy covers all the scope of practice of a dental hygienist or dental nurse, but dental therapists are also qualified to:

  • carry out direct restorations on permanent and primary teeth
  • carry out pulpotomies on primary teeth
  • extract primary teeth
  • place pre-formed crowns on primary teeth
  • plan the delivery of a patient’s care

Additional skills which  dental therapists could develop during their careers include

  • administering inhalational sedation
  • varying the detail of a prescription but not the direction of a  prescription
  • prescribing radiographs
  • carrying out tooth whitening to the prescription of a dentist
  • removing sutures after the wound has been checked by a dentist

Dental therapists do not carry out a patient’s initial diagnosis or take overall responsibility for planning a patient’s treatment.
