Postgraduate Training

The aim of Vocational Training for Hygienist-Therapists is to provide those recently qualified with the skills necessary to undertake duties in general dental practice or the salaried and hospital services by enhancing clinical and administrative competence, and promoting high ethical standards and quality of care for patients.

Trainers on the Hygienist-Therapist scheme (HTVT) have a pivotal role in guiding and advising a new graduate in his/her first year post-graduation in order to achieve this aim.
