An Advanced Dental Therapist is a licensed oral health professional who practices as part of the dental team to provide primary care, including preventive and restorative services such as fillings and routine exams. Similar to a nurse practitioner, advanced dental therapists like Renee, can practice with or without a dentist present. The profession began in 2009 and is critical to the expanding oral health care in rural areas.
