New opportunities for dental hygienists and dental therapists

The British Society of Dental Hygiene and Therapy (BSDHT) welcomes the recent update to Industry Qualifications (IQ) entry criteria for the Level 7 Certificate in Injectables in Aesthetic Medicine, which now recognises dental hygienists, dental therapists and paramedics.

IQ provides qualifications that are approved by UK regulators. Although it is not the only body to award the Level 7 Certificate in Injectables, its recent decision is a good step forward for the dental profession.

Helen Minnery, president of the BSDHT, commented:

“We are delighted that IQ has acknowledged the skills of dental hygienists and dental therapists and now enables them to gain the Level 7 Certificate. This recognition will allow our colleagues to train at the appropriate level for patient safety and standardise training throughout the healthcare profession.”
