Why choose this program?

If you are a general Dental practitioner and want to develop the necessary competence to safely and effectively undertake advanced general practice treatments, this program will meet your needs.

This program is offered with the following majors:

  • Endodontics
  • Implant Dentistry
  • Oral Epidemiology and Dental Public Health
  • Oral Surgery
  • Prosthodontics.

Attendance information

This program is offered full-time and part-time at the Gold Coast campus.

The program is tailored to the needs of practising dentists and is designed to upskill general dentists in their chosen major. Over the period of study it will combine face-to-face seminars, pre-clinical training, lectures, supervised clinical practice, mentoring and finish with a research project.

Face-to-face seminars, pre-clinical training and supervised clinical training will require on-campus attendance at Griffith University. Due to the need for students to develop complex clinical and technical skills throughout this program, and the flexible mode of delivery, courses may extend beyond the standard teaching trimester (that is, commencing earlier and extending later than the standard teaching trimester). Exact dates over which these extended courses will run will be published on a trimester-by-trimester basis in the Academic Calendar.

The program aims to directly benefit practitioners by enabling the immediate transfer of the developed competencies into clinical practice as the student advances through the program. In addition, the student will be encouraged to document and share experiences from his/her practice.

Managing study interruptions

Leave of absence
Students will require approval from the Head of School or nominee to take a leave of absence. Students who wish to take leave of absence may do so for no more than one year. Leave of absence is not encouraged or recommended in this program. However, extenuating circumstances will be considered.

Readmission
A student who has discontinued enrolment in a Dentistry and Oral Health program and who is not on an approved leave of absence is required to seek approval for readmission to the program from the Head, School of Dentistry and Oral Health or nominee. Readmission to a Dentistry and Oral Health program is not guaranteed and will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Please contact the School of Dentistry and Oral Health for further details.

Students who are returning to the program after an approved leave of absence will be required to successfully complete Clinical Skills Competency requirements before continuing with their program. Students who do not successfully complete these requirements will not be eligible to continue their program. Successful completion of these requirements will ensure students remain competent in their practical skills and are well prepared to continue with the program.

If you are an International student on a student visa, you must ensure that you enrol in a way that will allow you to complete your enrolment within the expected program duration as stated on your Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE).

My career opportunities

You will be able to deliver quality services within general dental practice. You may also continue towards a research degree.
