What is a Dental Prosthetist?
A Dental Prosthetist is a dental practitioner who has completed extensive training to become firstly a dental technician, who works by referral from a Dentist, and finally a Dental Prosthetist who is registered to consult patients directly. A Dental Prosthetist is registered to undertake the manufacture of complete dentures, partial dentures and mouthguards.
When you put yourself in the care of a Dental Prosthetist you can be secure in the knowledge that you are being looked after by a health professional with the most comprehensive knowledge of advanced techniques, new materials and the latest world trends in the field of denture prosthetics.

Dental Prosthetists directly make dentures for their own patients and have the knowledge and expertise to diagnose and rectify any faults within a denture.

A: HICAPS is an electronic system where your claim is made directly to your Health Fund. The Health Fund will pay the claim directly to the Prosthetist and you will only need to pay the gap payment. This system helps you save time by not having to go to the Health Fund and making the claim yourself.
