Melbourne DDS application deadline announced

23 March 2015

Great news, Australian dental school applicants! Melbourne has announced that the application deadline for the 2016 intake is July 31, 2015. In order for your complete Melbourne DDS application to be submitted on time, you are encouraged to have your complete application documents at the OzTREKK office by Thursday, July 30 at 12 noon.
The Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree leads to registration as a general dental practitioner with the Dental Practice Board in Australia and New Zealand, and creates a pathway to enter the Master of Philosophy, PhD or Doctor of Clinical Dentistry. Additionally, the National Dental Examining Board of Canada (NDEB) recognizes the reciprocal agreement between the Australian Dental Council and the Commission of Dental Accreditation of Canada, which allows for accredited graduates of either body to practice dentistry in Australia or Canada. For Canadian students studying at the University of Melbourne, this means that they will return home and follow the same process as Canadian domestic graduates with licensure being granted after successfully sitting the National Dental Examination Board of Canada.
