Dental Therapist


These are the range of procedures we can offer and which a Dental Therapist can carry out however your dentist will examine you and indicate clearly in writing the course of treatment that the Dental Therapist is to carry out.


Dental Therapists can deliver local anaesthesia only from a prescription of the drug by a registered dentist.

If there is a patient group directive in place a Dental Therapist may prescribe local anaesthesia in that particular dental setting.
