One world-class degree, dual oral health qualifications.
University of Newcastle oral health therapy students graduate with dual qualifications in dental hygiene and dental therapy. Our degree is also the only one in NSW that qualifies you to treat both children and adults, broadening your career options and boosting your employability.
When you study to be an oral health professional, you will learn skills in oral health that can make a real difference and shape a healthier future for children and adults. Work closely with professional dental practitioners and learn to perform a range of preventative and minor restorative tasks, educate your community on best practices and discover emerging methods for controlling and treating disease.
