Faculty of Dentistry



Employment opportunities are excellent for graduates in dentistry, especially in regional, rural & remote areas, government clinics and in academic teaching and research. This is attributable to the anticipated retirement of many dentists in the next twenty years together with the increasing numbers of older adults keeping their teeth longer than ever before due to improvements in oral health care and an increased demand for aesthetic services.

Career settings include private general practice, hospitals, armed forces, specialist practice, teaching, research and international aid agencies. Graduates take up positions as dental practitioners, oral health professionals and dental specialists.
