Course outline

The Bachelor of Oral Health equips students with the skills and knowledge to practise as an Oral Health Therapist. Students will develop skills to effectively perform preventive and operative dentistry for patients and provide specialist dental practices. In addition, the education and training will provide students with underpinning industry knowledge so they can educate and promote oral health in small group and community settings. The course has a strong focus on work-integrated learning in pre-clinical and clinical settings such as the purpose-fit oral health laboratory and dental clinic at CQUniversity Rockhampton. During the course, students will benefit from learning alongside students in other health courses in facilities such as CQUniversity’s Allied Health Clinic.
