“Dental hygienist”, a new profession in BelgiumFriday, 30 March 2018 19:48
The hygienists will be able to perform tasks such as dental health examinations, drawing up preventive care plans, tooth cleaning, administering a local anesthetic or removing stitches and dressings. They will be able to work directly with the dentists and administer medication, do X-rays or apply a dressing.
These technicians will undergo a three-year bachelor-of-science programme, which already exists in Flanders, where the first graduates are expected in June 2019. There is no such programme in Wallonia, but some universities have reportedly expressed interest in introducing it.
