About the program

Developed in cooperation with the Australian Dental Council, the Australian Dental Association, local dentists, oral health practitioners and senior consultants, the Dental Science program from Charles Sturt University is a five-year undergraduate program based at our Orange campus.

Our dental science and oral health graduates have excellent overall employment rates – 91.3 per cent of graduates find jobs within four months of graduating.

Develop your skills in our state-of-the-art simulation clinic, dental technology / clinical support laboratory, biodental science learning suite and anatomy teaching facilities. Charles Sturt University also has five dental and oral health clinics across its Albury-Wodonga, Bathurst, Dubbo, Orange and Wagga Wagga campuses. These clinics are open to patients from the local community and will provide some of your first professional training. You could undertake placements at any Charles Sturt University clinic during your course, working under the supervision of qualified dental practitioners.

We’re committed to providing high-quality teaching and service to students and to rural and regional communities. You’ll benefit from small class sizes and learn from dedicated and experienced academics and guest lecturers.

Towards the end of your degree, you can apply to embark on a short study tour to Cambodia or another destination through CSU Global.

Career opportunities

Charles Sturt University’s dental science graduates contribute to combating the chronic shortage of dental and oral health workers Australia-wide.
