Find out why OzTREKK students love Sydney Dental School!

31 August 2016

We love it when OzTREKK students excel in their chosen area of study.
We especially love it when our university partners feature them in videos!
Here, two former OzTREKK students, Kyle Schaltz and Bhavisha Thankey, talk about why they are enjoying their time at the Sydney Dental School.

Australia’s first dental school

As Australia’s first dental school, the Sydney Faculty of Dentistry has been training dental practitioners for more than 100 years.
Academics at the Faculty of Dentistry are expert oral health professionals, and researchers are pioneering new dental treatments to improve patient outcomes.
Sydney graduates are caring, think clearly and logically, and possess outstanding clinical and research capabilities. They are engaged and globally aware and have the capability to become leaders in oral health, dentistry and research. By studying at the University of Sydney, you will acquire the patient‑centred, evidence‑based skills required for modern dental practice.
