The Graduate Diploma in Clinical Dentistry (Surgical Dentistry) is a one year full-time program providing the opportunity for dentists registered in Australia to develop skills and acquire knowledge essential for oral surgery through a comprehensive curriculum of theoretical and clinical studies.
As a postgraduate dentistry student, you will learn from expert oral health professionals and researchers as you study at our Camperdown campus, as well as at the Westmead Centre for Oral Health and the Sydney Dental Hospital.
