      Overview

      The Graduate Certificate in Dental Therapy (Advanced Clinical Practice) expands your dental therapy qualifications to the treatment of patients of all ages.

      Recent legislative changes have removed age limits, enabling service provision in dental therapy practice to be greatly expanded.

      In this course you will learn to treat medically compromised patients, and develop an understanding of periodontology, the use of dental materials, prosthodontics, oral medicine and pharmacology, along with local anaesthesia, dental emergency management and cardiology.

      Who is this course for?

      The course is only available to registered practising dental therapists and oral health therapists (or dental therapists and oral health therapists eligible for registration).

      Course aims

      This course will qualify both DTs (Dental Therapists) and OHTs (Oral Health Therapists) to treat patients of all ages, equipping you with a range of skills including knowledge of adult oral health examinations.
