Bachelor of Dental Technology
Griffith University - Gold Coast

Course outline

This degree is ideal for those wanting to work behind the scenes in the dental industry creating and manufacturing dentures, crowns, bridges, and orthodontic appliances. Dentists rely on the manual and artistic skills of the dental technician to restore colour, form and function of the oral cavity and surrounding facial areas, and in this degree, you can specialise in the areas of dental technology practice: acrylic, composite and alloy, crowns, fillings, dentures, mouthguards, and all kinds of cutting-edge materials for dental repair. You’ll be introduced to prosthetics and develops skills in the dental laboratory, and in the second year, you’ll apply knowledge of dental materials to dental laboratory practice. Laboratory experience is continued through all years with an emphasis on work integrated learning in third year. Throughout this degree, you’ll gain real experience working alongside qualified dental technicians and use industry-standard equipment including computer-aided design (CAD) and also computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) in both subtractive (milling) and additive (3D printing) manufacturing CAD/CAM facilities. An exciting learning experience awaits with this first internationally-benchmarked dental technology degree in Australia.
