Academics at the Faculty of Dentistry are expert oral health professionals, and the university’s researchers are pioneering new dental treatments to improve patient outcomes. By studying with the University of Sydney, you will acquire the patient-centred, evidence-based skills required for the modern dental practice.


Researchers in the Faculty of Dentistry work collaboratively to address major health issues, with a focus on two major themes, “ageing well, ageing productively” and “chronic diseases.”
Discover how Sydney Dental School’s innovative research is delivering advances in treatment, improving the understanding of the complex mechanisms that cause disease, promoting evidence-based teaching, and driving improved health outcomes across Australia and around the world.

The faculty is based in integrated research, teaching, and clinical settings. Co-located with Sydney Dental Hospital, Westmead Centre for Oral Health and community clinics in New South Wales and beyond, students, teachers, researchers and alumni are the foundation of the professional community.
Sydney’s engaged, socially conscious community is constantly seeking new ways to learn, share best practice and solve problems. This ensures they are able to continue to offer education of the highest calibre and conduct leading research, which translates to real-world impact.
