General Dentists are primary dental care providers who hold a registrable qualification. They provide oral health care for patients in all age groups. The General Dentist is responsible for the diagnosis, management and overall coordination of services related to patients’ oral health needs and their ongoing maintenance.
General Dentists are well educated in all facets of oral health care. They have the ability to diagnose oral health conditions but are not necessarily skilled at the specialist level in performing all treatment requirements in dentistry. General Dentists undertake regular continuing professional development in order to maintain and develop their skill levels.
