A dentist-therapist is a dental professional who is trained to provide a wide range of dental treatments and services, including preventive care, restorative care, and some surgical procedures. The role of a dentist-therapist is similar to that of a dental hygienist, but with additional training and qualifications. Dentist-therapists may provide services such as oral health assessments, cleanings, fluoride treatments, filling cavities, applying sealants, and extracting teeth. They may also provide advice and education on oral hygiene and nutrition. Dentist-therapists typically have a degree in dental therapy or advanced dental therapy, which involves extensive training in oral health and disease prevention, as well as hands-on clinical experience. They work closely with dentists and other members of the dental team to provide comprehensive care to patients. Dentist-therapists are an important part of the dental industry, helping to ensure that patients receive high-quality care and maintain good oral health.
