Faculty of Dentistry
As Australia’s first dental school, the Faculty of Dentistry has been training dental practitioners for more than 100 years.
The faculty fosters research excellence, innovation and collaboration at the highest level, across the spectrum of basic science, clinical practice and population oral health. Our particular focus is on the emerging priorities of chronic disease and ageing.
Our graduates are caring, clear thinking, clinically outstanding and research capable. They are engaged and globally aware and have the capability to become leaders in oral health, dentistry and research.
Our alumnus, Dr Manish Arora received the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) for his leading research on the life-long health effects of environmental factors.
Professor Heiko Spallek, Pro Dean of the Faculty of Dentistry, participated in the inaugural Dental Public Health Colloquium 2017 as one of the keynote speakers.
