Who is Dental Hygienist?
Dental hygienists and therapists are registered dental professionals who help patients maintain their oral health by preventing and treating periodontal disease and promoting good oral health practice. They carry out treatment direct to patients or under prescription from a dentist.
Why consulting with UKDENTAL4U?
This guidance sets out the skills and abilities that each registrant group should have. It is not a list of tasks that someone can do. Your scope of practice is likely to change over the course of your career, both because of changes in the technology of dentistry, and your further training and development. As per GDC, it is therefore essential that ALL registrants are trained in dealing with medical emergencies, including resuscitation, and possess up to date evidence of capability. UKDENTAL4U also offers a demanding Immediate Life Support course for those who are preparing for the route to registration.
