Welcome to What I Wish I Knew by Dental Head Start. This is a podcast where we learn from people that have been there, made the mistakes, learnt the lessons and have developed into the accomplished dental professionals they are today.
It’s your weekly mentoring session.
Hosted by Haydyn Bathurst
In the ever evolving field of dentistry the role of the oral health therapist has morphed and changed. Different age ranges different types of treatment and all varied across different states. This gets pretty confusing. With me here today is the Vice President of ADOHTA, Lecturer at USYD and a fellow Colgate advocate for oral health which shout out we’re both apart of. I thought CJ would be an excellent start to dive into all things OHT and get into topics such as the role of oral health promotion and trying to reduce disparities in oral health, and what are other opportunities that being in the dental health space offers?
William ‘CJ’ Carlson-Jones is an Oral Health Therapist currently working as a lecturer with the University of Sydney teaching into their Bachelor of Oral Health program. Completing his Bachelor of Oral Health, Graduate Certificate in Oral Health Science, and Master of Business Administration CJ has strong aspirations to facilitate accessible, high quality dental care for all Australians. CJ has also commenced further studies undertaking a Doctor of Philosophy with the University of Queensland. His research will focus primarily on impact the transitional workforce from dental therapist to oral health therapist might have upon consumers, public dental services, tertiary institutions, and regional areas. He is the Vice President for the Australian Dental Oral Health Therapists’ Association (ADOHTA) and is a strong advocate for a team approach to dental care. CJ continues to strive for high-level corporate governance through his membership with the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD). He is a founding representative on the Colgate Advocates for Oral Health: Editorial Community.
