Students of the school make a significant contribution to the treatment of patients with Queensland Health community and school clinics, and the school has a very close working relationship with Queensland Health as well as with dental public health services in Tasmania and in the Northern Territory. The school works closely with Aboriginal medical services in delivering dental care by students on placements.
