Australian dental school application deadlines

Australian dental schools are very popular among Canadian students. Why? It’s because of the reciprocal agreement between Canada and Australia allowing international graduates of accredited dentistry programs from both countries to be considered the same as domestic graduates. Canadians who have graduated from an accredited Australian dentistry program are required to write the same National Dental Examining Board of Canada (NDEB) Written Examination and Objective Structured Clinical Examination as someone who graduated from a Canadian dentistry program before he or she would be licensed to practice.

Now on to the good part: the application deadlines. Remember, it’s always best to apply as early as possible since dentistry admissions can be very competitive! If you’ve already filled out an Australian dental schools application, now is the time to get the remaining app documents in!

UQ School of Dentistry alumnus to lead dental science research group

An opportunity to reinstate and lead a specialist training program in periodontics has attracted Professor Saso Ivanovski to return to the UQ School of Dentistry where he was a student and academic staff member between 1989 and 2006.

UQ School of Dentistry alumnus returns to lead dental science research group

Professor Ivanovski

Periodontology or periodontics is a field of dentistry that specialises in the supporting structures of teeth and the treatment of gum disease.

A registered periodontist, Professor Ivanovski said it was during his undergraduate studies that he was inspired by several mentors to pursue his career in periodontics.

“Having such strong and respected mentors in this area gave me the motivation to complete a PhD in the field of periodontal regeneration and specialist clinical training in the field of periodontics,” Professor Ivanovski said.

“I was fortunate to work with great teachers and obtain training across multiple facets of clinical research and the biological sciences, leading to a successful and rewarding academic career.

“In my new role at UQ I am looking forward to progressing my research in regenerative dentistry to ultimately impact the health and life quality of patients.”

Professor Ivanovski’s most recent position was Chair and Professor of Periodontology at the Griffith University School of Dentistry and Oral Health, where he led the specialist training program in periodontology and was discipline lead of dental implantology.

He graduated with a Bachelor of Dental Science in 1993, PhD in 2000 and Master of Dental Science in Periodontology in 2002, all from The University of Queensland.

Professor Ivanovski is the former federal president of the Australian Society of Periodontology (ASP) and the Australasian Osseointegration Society (AOS), and is a fellow of the International Team of Implantology, the Academy of Dentistry International and the International College of Dentists.

Some of his career highlights include a NHMRC training postdoctoral fellowship at UQ’s Institute of Molecular Biosciences, a fellowship at the University College of London’s Eastman Dental Institute and numerous NHMRC project grants.

“I am very lucky to work in an area I love and have enjoyed mentoring postdoctoral fellows, PhD students and professional clinical doctorate students who have gone on to have successful careers,” Professor Ivanovski said

“Having the ability to draw on the positive experiences I have had and inspire students to excel in their desired profession is very fulfilling.”

Professor Ivanovski will lead a research group within the UQ School of Dentistry, with a focus on the clinical and biological aspects oro-facial reconstruction and regeneration.

Head of School of Dentistry, Professor Pauline Ford said the appointment will strengthen the School’s capacity to produce outstanding research and skilled leaders in dental science.

“We are very fortunate to have a periodontal specialist of Professor Ivanovski’s calibre to join our school.”

Professor Ivanoski began his appointment in early October.

Bush dentistry attracts esteemed UQ School of Dentistry alumni

What inspired two former presidents of the Australian Dental Association Queensland Branch (ADAQ) to take up leadership positions in rural dental clinics?

For UQ School of Dentistry alumnus Dr Derek Lewis, the Supervising Dentist Team Leader at UQ’s St George Dental Clinic it was to encourage students to experience the joys of rural practice, as he did throughout his career.

Bush dentistry attracts esteemed UQ School of Dentistry alumni

“When I graduated, I was very much the ‘wet behind the ears’ city boy,” Dr Lewis said.

“Working for Queensland Health, I was appointed in Cloncurry as ‘Dentist in Charge’ and was the only dentist in the Cloncurry and Julia Creek clinics.

“Following that, I spent 18 months at the Collinsville Dental Clinic where I thoroughly enjoyed the exposure to rural and remote practice and very quickly became involved in the local community.

“Whilst I had found a passion for working in rural communities, it was when I was president of the ADAQ in 1999 that I was enlightened to the problem of access to dental services away from the major coastal centres.”

Following Derek’s 35-plus years as a practicing dentist working in both private and public practices in city and rural areas, he is looking forward to instilling in students some of the worldly wisdom he accumulated along the way.

“Encouraging more dentists to ‘The Bush’ is a very important health service I can assist with, as well as provide the students with a successful career choice.”

For University of Queensland alumnus Dr Ralph Kelsey, the Supervising Dentist Team Leader at UQ’s Dalby Dental Clinic, it was having an educational role within the university he graduated from and working in a town he had a family connection with that drew him back.

“My mother was raised on a property north of Roma where my siblings and I worked for most of our school holidays, so I am quite familiar with the challenges and satisfaction of living and working in a rural environment,” Dr Kelsey said.

“Whilst ADAQ President I was made aware of the significant challenges that dentists working in rural and remote areas faced, such as specialist referrals, dental laboratories, equipment maintenance, staff and mentorship.

“In this role I hope to be able to impart the skills and knowledge I gained after almost 35 years in clinical practice to the dental students.”

As the Dalby Dental Clinic is based within the Goondir Health Services, there is a high proportion of Indigenous patients from the Goondir Community.

“Students find that there are many health challenges being experienced by the patients which impact the delivery of care and the structure of comprehensive treatment plans,” Dr Kelsey said.

“They are finding the Goondir patients very pleasant to care for and very appreciative of the service provided by the students.

“It is very satisfying being able to support the university and students in this location.”

UQ School of Dentistry  Head of School Professor Pauline Ford said the School was extremely fortunate to benefit from the extensive knowledge and experience of Dr Lewis and Dr Kelsey.

“Their experience in both private practice and hospital clinics in city, regional and rural areas provides an excellent basis for future dental practitioners to learn from, and to encourage students to return to the bush after graduation.”

Both clinics are operated in partnership with UQ’s School of Dentistry and Goondir Health Services, supported by the Commonwealth Government’s Dental Training Expanding Rural Placements (DTERP) Program and Rural Health and Medical Training (RHMT) Fund.

UQ Dentistry graduate: from childhood refugee to award-winning dentist

A decade after fleeing his native Iran, Dr Hooman Baghaie, knows the importance of being able to smile.

This is why the University of Queensland Bachelor of Dental Science graduate and childhood refugee gives back to those in disadvantaged communities.

UQ Dentistry graduate: from childhood refugee to award-winning dentist

“I arrived in Australia at the age of 12,” Dr Baghaie said. “My parents, my younger sisters and I were forced to leave Iran because we belonged to the Baha’i faith.

“Part of my development as a dentist has been to give something back to the community.

“I have been fortunate enough to be involved in numerous research projects with refugees, rural Australians and those suffering from mental illnesses.

“UQ has supported me to provide volunteer dental care in East Timor and Cambodia, and in Australia with the Royal Flying Doctor Service.”

Head of the UQ School of Dentistry Professor Pauline Ford said Dr Baghaie had achieved the highest clinical marks in both his third and fourth years of a Bachelor of Dental Science and described him as an exceptional student and an inspiration to others.

“Hooman received a number of prizes, awards and medals in recognition of his academic achievement,” Professor Ford said.

“He has displayed a passion for helping those in need, and volunteered a generous amount of his time to serve those, both in Australia and abroad.

“He had already been employed by the School of Dentistry as a casual tutor and, in 2015, he received the Pierre Fauchard Award in recognition of his character, work ethic and academic ability.

“These qualities, along with a dedication to research and advocacy for the disadvantaged, were also keys to his nomination as valedictorian in 2016.”

Dr Baghaie is now working as a dentist on the Gold Coast, and is continuing his studies and research.

More options for anyone interested in studying dentistry in Australia!

Effectively immediately, the UQ dentistry program will no longer require international applicants to write the International Student Admissions Test (ISAT).

Admissions test no longer required for UQ dentistry program

Learn more about the UQ dentistry program

So, what does that mean for our Canadian students?

This is great news, as the program increased its number of spots for international students for the 2018 intake from 12 to 40. UQ is among the most prestigious universities in Australia and the feedback we have received from the few OzTREKK students who started in the program in February this year has been glowing.

How will I be assessed?

If you have not undertaken any post-secondary studies, you will be assessed based on your top Grade 12 marks. You must have a 90% in your top subjects to apply (top 6 in Ontario, top 5 in BC/Alberta).

If you have taken one or more years of university, your GPA will be calculated based on your university studies. You must have a  cumulative GPA of 6.5/7.0. This varies slightly by university but, in Canadian terms, your GPA must be a 3.67 on a 4.0 scale or a 92% on a percentile scale to be eligible for the program.

How do I apply?

UQ assesses applications on a rolling-admissions basis—that means the university assesses applications as they are received. If you wish to apply, you are strongly encouraged to apply as soon as possible. With such dentistry being so popular with Canadian students, we expect the UQ dentistry program will fill before the summer is out.

If you have already applied to other Australian dental schools for the 2018 intake, email Adam to let him know you would to apply to UQ as well. Adam will advise you if anything else is needed to complete your application (a high school transcript is required—for everyone!).

Program: Bachelor of Dental Science
Location: Brisbane, Queensland
Semester intake: February
Duration: 5 years
Application deadline: Rolling admissions—the sooner you apply the better. Apps close officially on October 30 each year.

CSU dentistry students part of healthcare team for refugees

Charles Sturt University (CSU) students are playing a key role in an innovative oral health program in regional NSW to help recently arrived refugees settle into their new home.

Students are working with health professionals in the Multicultural Centre Refugee Health Clinic in Wagga Wagga. Along with staff from the Wagga Wagga Health Service (WWHS) and the Wagga Multicultural Centre, the oral health students complete oral health assessments on the refugee patients in the Clinic.

CSU third-year students Ms Victoria Holahan and Ms Liya Johny describe their involvement in the program as life-changing.

“My experience in the program has been so rewarding I would now like to work with Indigenous populations when I complete my degree at Charles Sturt University,” Ms Holahan said.

Ms Johny said the refugees tell you how they used to live and sometimes the stories are heartbreaking.

“It has been an eye-opener to approach oral health in this way. One of the really important things that we try to do is to educate the refugees about achieving good oral health,” Ms Johny said.

Wagga Wagga Health Service (WWHS) dental therapist tutor Ms Margaret Selvey said the model was a perfect example of integrated public healthcare under the one roof.

“The clients are streamlined into the service for a general health assessment and those with the highest needs are seen first,” Ms Selvey said.

“We have seen hundreds of patients with a wide range of requirements.”

Ms Selvey said many of the refugees are in need of dental care.

“Most of the families have been in refugee camps for up to two years with limited access to tooth brushing, food and clinical services. They’ve been living in tents so dental hygiene has not been high on their list,” she said.

Once a refugee arrives in their new country and they begin life in a regional centre such as Wagga Wagga they receive a comprehensive medical examination by a doctor from the Primary Health Network (PHN).

Mobile dental equipment is taken to the weekly health assessment where a limited oral health assessment is performed by the CSU students under supervision. The oral health assessment allows for a timely triage so that the most urgent cases can be seen at the hospital clinic.

Ms Selvey added that CSU students are able to train in real-life situations and learn first-hand some of the oral health issues facing refugees.

UQ offers more free dental care in new alliance

The University of Queensland will help deliver more free public dental care thanks to a new partnership with the State Government.

The alliance between UQ and Metro North Hospital and Health Service (MNHHS) will give an extra 8,000 eligible public patients with access to dental treatment at the Oral Health Centre in Herston.

SUQ offers more free dental care in new alliance

UQ Faculty of Health and Behavioural Sciences Executive Dean Professor Bruce Abernethy said the alliance was an integrated operation that would begin with the amalgamation of UQ and MNHHS teaching, research and clinical activities at the Oral Health Centre in January 2017.

“UQ will be responsible for the academic function of the alliance, providing evidence-based teaching and clinically focused research, while Metro North will be responsible for clinical service delivery and clinical supervision of students,” Professor Abernethy said.

“Brisbane Dental Hospital will be relocated in a staged fashion from its current Turbot Street location to our state-of-the-art facility in the Herston Health Precinct throughout the year.”

Head of UQ Dental School Professor Pauline Ford said the partnership was another opportunity for dental students to improve the quality of life of those in need.

“Our students are committed to providing healthcare to those who require it most,” Professor Ford said.

“Research assistant and oral health therapist Nicole Cockburn organised Dental Rescue Week for youth experiencing homelessness earlier this year, and our existing partnership with Ozcare gives free dental care to men in South Brisbane hostels.”

Professor Ford has spent much of her professional life researching and enhancing dental care for the disadvantaged.

“Both personally and professionally, I am proud to announce that one of the main tenets of the alliance is the focus on providing dental treatment for the Brisbane North area’s most vulnerable population,” Professor Ford said.

The model for the alliance is comparable to arrangements in other states, such as the Westmead Centre for Oral Health (University of Sydney), The Royal Dental Hospital of Melbourne (University of Melbourne), and the Adelaide Dental Hospital (University of Adelaide).
