Choose your career
Get qualified to practise as a registered dental practitioner
Make a positive contribution to community health with a career in dentistry. Kick-start your career with our regionally focused Bachelor of Dental Science – which has half of its places reserved for rural, regional and First Nations students – and you’ll qualify for registration as a dental practitioner throughout Australia. You’ll learn from experts in the field including our dedicated team of dentistry tutors and lecturers who are there to support you every step of the way. Learn in our fully operational clinics, treating real patients, and develop the skills you need to practise anywhere. Once you’ve begun your career, you can return to undertake more specialised postgraduate studies to add another area of expertise or explore leadership or research opportunities.
Start your career
Help combat the shortage of oral health professionals in Australia
As an oral health practitioner, you’ll educate patients about the best oral hygiene practices, advise on preventing disease, and provide treatment for a range of oral health conditions. Our Bachelor of Oral Health (Therapy and Hygiene) is accredited by the Australian Dental Council, so when you graduate you’ll be eligible for registration with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency. Once you’ve begun your career, you can return to undertake more specialised postgraduate studies to explore leadership or research opportunities.
Inspire your team
A career in health leadership means you not only help people; you empower others to help patients in turn. Start your career with an undergraduate course that aligns with your clinical interests. Then gain advanced leadership skills with a postgraduate qualification – which will be your passport to career opportunities across the spectrum of healthcare services. Whatever your passion, you’ll become a specialist in a field that will help to improve the health and quality of patients, all while you lead and motivate healthcare professionals to be their best, every day.
