Consultation issued 21 February 2019


The oral health therapy scope of practice was established in November 2016 and came into effect on 1 November 2017.
The Council is now revisiting the restorative treatment age and is proposing to remove the 18-year age limit for restorative activities from the oral health therapy scope of practice.

We now seek your feedback on the proposal and the amended oral health therapy scope of practice, prescribed qualifications and competencies. 

Your submission will be published

All submissions received will be published on the Council’s website shortly after receipt, and will remain there as a public document.  For submissions made by individuals, only your name and profession, if you are a registered health practitioner, will be published. All your personal contact details will be removed from your submission. 

As this is a public consultation “in confidence” information will only be accepted under special circumstances. Please contact the Council before submitting any confidential information. The Council holds the right not to publish any derogatory or inflammatory submissions.

Your input is important and we look forward to receiving your feedback on the proposal.
