A Dental Therapist is a registered healthcare professional who, supervised by a dentist, specialises in the oral care of pre-school, primary and secondary school children. Dental Therapy Assistants provide help with preparing young patients for examinations and procedures in order to improve efficiency and ease the workload for the dentist and dental therapist.
Focussing on patient care, the Dental Therapy Assistant will greet children and parents, help them feel comfortable and at ease and offer information regarding treatments and examination procedures. They aid in educating and motivating young patients to maintain good oral health practices.
Dental Therapy Assistants also organise tools and equipment, help to maintain infection control standards, prepare and clean rooms before and after treatments and serve as an extra set of hands during procedures. They may have additional administrative duties such as updating records, managing stock levels and documenting procedures.
