Hands-on experience: Griffith dentistry international placements

Griffith Dental School students receive extensive practical experience as they work under and alongside qualified oral health professionals in the university’s modern dental clinic and commercial laboratory. From the first year of study, students will have the opportunity to undertake placements, from state schools, rural and remote to indigenous and aged care, allowing them to apply learned skills and develop valuable contacts.
Make a difference to the health of individuals and the community. Working in an oral health team with fellow students (dental, oral health therapy and dental technology students), you will have the opportunity to undertake a research project that identifies an oral health issue and solutions to the issue. Previous students projects have taken them to far North Queensland, PNG, and Vanuatu where their research and identified solutions are improving the oral health of these communities.
