The Bachelor of Oral Health in Dental Science offers a new, innovative curriculum where you will receive real clinical exposure from your first year of study, and you will work alongside oral health professionals who are world experts in their field.
Hands-on experienceGriffith dentistry students will gain extensive practical experience as you work under and alongside qualified oral health professionals in the university’s modern dental clinic and commercial laboratory. From the first year of study, students will have the opportunity to undertake placements in a range of settings including state schools, rural and remote areas, Indigenous communities and aged care facilities, allowing them to apply learned skills and develop valuable contacts.
You can make a difference to the health of individuals and the community. Working in an oral health team with your fellow students (dental, oral health therapy and dental technology students), you will have the opportunity to undertake a research project that identifies an oral health issue and identify solutions. Previous students have undertaken projects which have taken them to far North Queensland and Vanuatu, where their research and identified solutions are improving the oral health of these communities.
