SA Dental Service – Dental Therapists – Transition to AHP Stream

19 March 2018

The Public Service Association (PSA) has now commenced discussions with the Office for the Public Sector (OPS) and SA Dental Service (SADS) for the translation of Dental Therapists into the Allied Health Professional (AHP) Stream. This is as an outcome of the new South Australian Modern Public Sector Enterprise Agreement (Appendix 1 of Appendix 6A on page 119).

At this stage the PSA is in early discussions and there has been no agreement as yet to the Translation Principles. This process is to be completed within three months of approval of the new agreement (31 January 2018) yet it is now the middle of March and the PSA is still waiting for a draft proposal from OPS.

PSA members who have any concerns or comments in relation to this translation process can email PSA.

For any other issues concerning SADS please contact your PSA Organiser.
