Dental Prosthetist

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. Starting as a dental technician 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 Prosthetists really are denture experts as this is the only area of dentistry they work in. They do not perform fillings, extractions or any other dental services. This means all their experience and skill are concentrated in the field of dentures. This keeps them on the cutting edge of denture concepts and technologies.
