Message from the Acting Dean

Welcome to Continuing Education, The University of Sydney School of Dentistry

We have been providing continuing professional development programs since 1947. With the introduction of mandatory requirements for continuing professional development and as part of the requirement for registration with the Dental Board of Australia it will become increasingly important to invest and actively participate in life-long learning through education programs. The Sydney Dental School has an ongoing commitment to graduates in the dental fields with regard to on-going learning and up-skilling. Our courses provide the perfect platform in which to engage in activities which are offered to assist dental professionals in their obligation to provide high quality patient care in our community.

Our office has for many years been providing topical and relevant dental education relevant to both general and public dentistry, specialists and the oral health profession. We will continue to aspire to excellence in professional development courses through our continuing education unit. We are very thankful to all who contribute to the Continuing Education in Dentistry program in order to deliver a comprehensive range of educational activities. I would like to thank the Continuing Education in Dentistry staff, committee members, faculty and hospital staff for their support, as well as the presenters, conveners and dental industry who have assisted not only in the past and present but in the coming years.

Heiko Spallek, Acting Dean
