What is a Clinical Dental Technician?
Mr Joe Gaeta is a member of BACDT
What is a Clinical Dental Technician?
Clinical Dental Technicians (CDT’s) are registered Dental Care Professionals (DCP’s), who are regulated by the General Dental Council.
Qualifying as a clinical dental technician involves years of intensive study that exceeds dental technician’s training through additional modules in sciences, clinical skills and customer care. Their position allows them to offer patients direct treatment for the construction, repairing and fitting of removable dental appliances. Whilst dentists and clinical dental technicians work independently of each other, they may confer on treatments when it is in the best interest of the patient.
Whilst most commonly used by denture-wearers, clinical dental technicians can offer a range of services, including advice on oral health. Along with performing technical and clinical procedures for removable dental appliances, clinical dental technicians can carry out intensive clinical examinations to search for oral abnormalities and refer patients to other health care professionals where necessary.
The scope of practice for clinical dental technicians is specific to ensure the safety and well-being of patients. If you are a patient who feels that they are being provided with services outside the technician’s job description, it is important to report it to the correct authorities.
Qualified CDT’s have undertaken extensive training to be able to provide a range of denture products to the public. To find out more about ‘The Scope of Practice’
