Dental prosthetists


Table presents the workforce projection scenario results for dental prosthetists. In contrast to the workforce projections for dentists and oral health practitioners, the workforce projections for dental prosthetists show that demand is projected to exceed supply across the entire projection period to 2025 under the comparison scenario. Of all the scenarios, the productivity scenario has the greatest impact in reducing the workforce gap for dental prosthetists relative to the comparison scenario in 2025. Detailed results of each scenario are presented in Appendix C.

Workforce dynamics indicators


Table 8 presents the WDI results for dental prosthetists, based on data calculated in the comparison scenario (except for the duration of training indicator). Almost all indicators were in the same assessment bracket in the two periods, except percentage aged 55 and over. For this indicator, the calculated increase in the percentage of those aged 55 resulted in the assessment moving to a higher bracket (of higher concern).
