OWEN, CP. Denturism (Clinical Dental Technology) - A brief review. S. Afr. dent. j. [online]. 2019, vol.74, n.10, pp.575-577. ISSN 0375-1562.

The term 'denturism' is most commonly used worldwide for either dental technicians who are trained clinically, usually in removable prosthodontics, or for people who are trained specifically in that field to carry out both the laboratory and clinical procedures. In South Africa the term used is 'clinical dental technologist' and was introduced as an amendment to the Dental Technicians Act in 1997. However, this oral health professional has never been defined and no regulations have been promulgated. The South African Dental Technician's Council will be investigating the appropriate regulatory framework to provide for the enactment of clinical dental technology, and so the purpose of this paper is to give some background to denturism in general and to make suggestions as to the guidelines to be followed were it to be established in South Africa.

Palabras clave : Denturism; denturist; dental prosthetist; clinical dental technologist.
