Dental Schools in Australia
Traditionally dental schools in Australia offered five year undergraduate dental programs. Student are able to study Dental School directly from high school. It is suggested that students have background knowledge in biology, chemistry and physics.
More recently, Australian Dental Schools offer graduate entry Dental programs in Australia. These programs are usually four years in duration. Applicants must hold an undergraduate degree. Graduate Entry Dental School programs in Australia may require supplementary applications, as well as DAT results.
Entry to all Dental Schools in Australia are very competitive as numbers are restricted. There are strict application deadlines and specific entry requirements. Some universities require interviews.
In March 2010, the Australian Dental Association and the Commission on Dental Accreditation of Canada signed a reciprocal agreement that recognizes graduates of accredited dental programs in Australia and Canada for certification. Unlike graduates of non-accredited programs, students who graduate from an accredited dental program in Australia after 2010 will not be required to do a two year qualifying program prior to applying for certification. Due to the agreement, graduates of accredited Australian programs will have the same certification processes as graduates of accredited Canadian programs.
Future dentists can access the National Dental Examining Board of Canada (NDEB), as well as the Canadian Information Centre for International Credentials.
