The School of Dentistry

The UQ School of Dentistry has a long and proud tradition of 84 years of strength in dental education and research, and attracts high achieving students nationally and internationally.  UQ is a leading source of expertise in the local, national and international dental community and has been a key contributor to achieving effective solutions to contemporary issues and challenges. The School has strong collaborations within and outside the dental profession.

New teaching and research facilities (including expanded simulation labs) and new equipment at the forefront of current technology used in dentistry have allowed the School of Dentistry to commence a refreshed and innovative undergraduate dental program, along with an expanded range of postgraduate programs.

From January 2017, the Oral Health Alliance (OHA) integrated the activities of Metro North Hospital and Health Service Oral Health Services and the UQ School of Dentistry to establish world-class activities in clinical teaching, research and service provision in oral health, headquartered around the state-of-the-art Oral Health Centre on the co-located Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital and UQ campus at Herston.
