Bachelor of Dental Technology

Griffith University

This degree is ideal for students who like to work behind the scenes creating and manufacturing dentures, crowns, bridges and orthodontic appliances but not fitting the final denture or appliance to the patient.  It suits students who like working with their hands, can pay attention to detail and prefer not to work directly with the patient.  Dental Technologists (or Dental Technicians as they are often referred to) are highly skilled members of the dental team. They combine art and science skills to construct custom-made dental devices to replace, restore and correct defects that may affect our facial appearance and the ability to use our teeth properly. As an undergraduate student, you will learn and work alongside Dentistry students in our state of the art dental clinics and laboratories located in the same building. Our students enjoy working with industry-standard equipment including CAD-CAM (Computer Aided Design/Manufacturing) facilities. You will also expand your hands-on experience working with registered and experienced Dental Technicians in our commercial laboratory and through professional practice placements. Honours is available through an additional year of study.
