The Oral Hygiene Technician profession is a paradental discipline. It was established as a new field to train qualified personnel in order to increase community knowledge of oral health and the prevention of oral and dental illness.
This discipline's goal is to make a significant contribution to improving oral health indices. Following the creation of oral health care insurance coverage, it is envisaged that educating them at a considerably cheaper cost than therapists will help to lessen the community's burden of dental caries and periodontal disorders.
