To allow Oral Health Therapists administer Botox and Dermal Fillers

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

With the Dental Industry expanding, and the use of different materials, it is time the scope of Practice for an Oral Health Therapist was renewed. With changes occurring in the industry the scope must be changed also. As the increased use of Botox and Dermal Fillers arise within dental practice, why should only Doctors, Dentists and Nurses be able to administer these? We are highly qualified practitioners who have extensive knowledge about the head and neck, oral tissues and overall health of our patients, therefore I believe with our finely honed skills we should be able to join these health members in practising with both Botox and Dermal Fillers. Oral Health Therapists have focus specifically on these areas so why are we so limited? Please join me if you believe we should be able to expand our scope of practice through extra CPD courses, to include the administration of Botox and Dermal Fillers within our scope.
