Dental Assisting: Draft 1 Consultation Extended

SkillsIQ, under the direction of the Dental Industry Reference Committee (IRC), has undertaken a project to update the packaging rules of the two Dental Assisting qualifications and to update fourteen Dental Assisting Units of Competency and six Oral Health Care Units of Competency to align to the changing duties of existing and future job roles of all dental support staff, including dental assistants. 

A widespread multi-channel consultation involving a broad range of stakeholders is now being conducted to address concerns raised in previous consultations and discussions around the Dental Assisting qualifications and the Dental Assisting and Oral Health Care Units and their content. Consultation extended to 5:00pm on Friday, 13 December 2019.
