A Dental Prosthetist is a highly qualified and skilled member of the Dental profession who constructs, fits and provides a complete and professional denture care service. Dental Prosthetists are Registered Health Care Professionals and are able to deal directly with patients – no referral required.
By direct consultation, the Dental Prosthetist will:
- construct and fit dentures or sporting mouthguards
- will maintain, repair and reline dentures as required by the patient or referring practitioner
- will personally consult, advise and assist the patient in all relevant aspects of their treatment and where neccesary, provide a referral
By dealing directly with a Dental Prosthetist you are consulting with the person who actually construct the dentures.
A Dental Prosthetist is qualified to instruct on how best to care for dentures, and when an adjustment or replacement is required.
