Studying Dentistry at Griffith University: Make It Matter

Meet former OzTREKK student, Jen, a second-year Griffith University student who moved from Canada to Australia in 2022 to pursue her passion—to become a dentist!

A Bachelor of Dental Health Science/Master of Dentistry student, Jen is passionate about using preventative dental health to help others, in the same way her childhood dentist helped her to regain her confidence.

Originally from Canada, Jen now lives on the beautiful Gold Coast and enjoys the pristine beaches and stunning hinterland in her free time. She’s eager to make the most of her experience at Griffith.
