Dental therapists examine and treat diseases of the teeth in pre-school,primary and secondary school children, under the general supervision of a dentist. The dentistry work performed is varied from identifying the disease risk of the child, providing professionally applied preventive treatments, carrying out simple restorative work in deciduous and permanent teeth, through to the extraction of teeth under local anaesthetic, and the initial management of trauma.
