Dental Hygienist

Dental hygienists work as part of the dental team in treating patients. They use preventive, educational and therapeutic methods for the control of oral diseases to aid individual patients and groups in achieving and maintaining oral health. They are trained to do specific clinical procedures which aim to prevent dental disease and work under the supervision of a dentist.

There is currently a shortage of hygienists due mainly to the shortage of training facilities and places are limited in Australia, thus competition for this dental career is keen.
