Sydney Dental School is looking for leaders
Sydney Dental School Dean Professor Chris Peck speaks about the kind of students the Faculty of Dentistry is looking for—leaders in policy and practice. The school strives to develop graduates who are lifelong learners, committed to the highest professional and ethical standards.
University of Sydney Dental School
The University of Sydney Dental School’s Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) is a graduate-entry program that has been purposefully designed to adhere to the well-rounded course structure of the North American post-graduate model, but has also maintained the sophisticated clinical training for which the university has come to be renowned, giving students an applicable knowledge of dental health from the community to the laboratory.
The Sydney Dental School is about comprehensive learning, and embracing all the aspects of becoming a successful dentist. Sub-units integrate academic disciplines such as endodontics and orthodontics with the requisite training needed to evolve dental health knowledge into the highly specialized skills of a dental health professional.
Students seeking to pursue careers beyond simply practicing dentistry can learn about their options from the members of the several research initiatives housed in Sydney’s Faculty of Dentistry including the “Cellular Molecular Pathology Research Unit,” the “Jaw Function and Orofacial Pain Research Unit,” and the world’s oldest-named dental institute, Sydney’s own “Institute of Dental Research.”
