Dentistry courses in Australia provide students with the skills and knowledge needed for professional registration. While the minimum qualification for entry into the dentistry profession in Australia is a bachelor degree, VET courses are available in dental assisting and dental technology. Like other accredited fields of study, students interested in studying dentistry in Australia have the option of completing an undergraduate degree in dentistry, or an undergraduate program in a related area followed by a postgraduate dentistry qualification. Dentistry is a small field of study in Australia as far as student numbers go, which means that study options are more limited than in other fields. That said, most states will have at least one university that offers dentistry qualifications, with courses taught in state-of-the-art facilities and fully operational clinics.
