In addition, the degree has a strong focus on the unique challenges of rural and remote oral health, in particular with vulnerable and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island communities.

Students will complete clinical placements in year 1 and 2 at the CSU Dental and Oral Health Clinics in Wagga Wagga. During year 3, students complete placement at various sites including CSU clinical sites in Albury and Wagga Wagga as well as other regional NSW Health oral health clinics.

Students studying at Holmesglen and Wagga Wagga will learn in state-of-the-art simulation clinics. Our staff include dual-qualified oral health therapists currently practising in both the public and private health sector, to make sure you are receiving current, industry relevant education.

As a graduate of the course, you will contribute to combating the chronic shortage and increasing demand for oral health professionals Australia-wide, while also significantly impacting the health of our local communities.
