What is a Dental Prosthetist?
Our denture related patients see a qualified dental prosthetists who are registered by the Dental Board of Australia the same way dentists and other dental professionals are. A Dental Prosthetist is essentially a dental technician, that has gone on to study further and complete either a diploma or degree in advanced dental prosthetics. By starting as a dental technician its means they fully understand and have had hands on experience in a dental lab in the fabrication of dentures and dental appliances unlike dentists.
Dental Prosthetist really are denture experts as this is the only area of dental they work in. They do not perform fillings, extractions or any other dental services. This means all there experience and skill is concentrated in the field of dentures. This keeps them on the cutting edge of denture concepts and technologies.
