MoH, PB join hands to produce dental hygienists and therapists

The Ministry of Health (MoH) and Politeknik Brunei (PB) yesterday signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to produce qualified dental hygienists and therapists to meet the treatment needs and demands of the population. The signing took place at PB at Jalan Ong Sum Ping. The collaboration is to train sufficient dental hygienists and therapists in the next decade to fill the manpower shortage gap in the Department of Dental Services and to provide training to ensure a continuous supply of dental care professionals working as part of the dental team managing the oral healthcare needs of the nation.
