What is a Dental Prosthetist?
Dental Prosthetists are qualified professionals who specialise in their field. By direct consultation, your Dental Prosthetist will construct and fit dentures or sporting mouthguards as well as maintain, repair and reline the dentures as required. Your Dental Prosthetist will personally consult, advise and assist patients in all relevant aspects of their treatment, and where necessary, provide a referral
To consult a Dental Prosthetist, patients do NOT require to provide a referral. Patients in need of a complete upper or lower denture (where all teeth are missing) can visit any Dental Prosthetists, however if patients require a partial denture (where all teeth are not missing) then the patient will have to choose an appropriate Dental Prosthetist as not all have the correct additional training and qualification required.
Australian Dental Prosthetist Association is the professional body and as such, sets and monitors the standards and conduct of the profession. All Dental Prosthetists belonging to the Association abide by a Code of Ethics which ensures that all patients are safeguarded in every possible way.
When you put yourself in the care of a Dental Prosthetist you can rest easy that you are being looked after by a health provider with the most comprehensive knowledge of advanced techniques, new materials and the latest trends in the field of Denture Prosthetics.
