Who treats the dental patients?
UQ Dental School students are some of the best in the state, requiring excellent scores to enter UQ Dentistry courses. Undergraduate students study and train for five years to become a dentist or three years to become an oral health therapist. Postgraduate students are qualified dentists studying to become dental specialists. Before they treat in clinic, UQ training dentists perform up to 700 hours of simulation practice. This is followed by over 2,600 hours clinical work, ensuring they become highly competent practitioners. All treatment is supervised by registered dentists and specialists.

UQ School of Dentistry

The Bachelor of Dental Science (BDSc) (Honours)  program within the UQ School of Dentistry follows a unique educational model which gives the graduating students extensive experience through clinical placements prior to their graduation.
The UQ Dental School is a major patient treatment facility in Queensland, with students providing treatments to patients on a fee-for-service basis, and to patients eligible for treatment within public dental services. 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.
