What’s it really like to be an international student studying Sydney dentistry?

We know student reviews are important to help you decide if a program or university is right for you. Reviews are also a great source of info to find out what it’s really like as an international student studying in Australia.

Former OzTREKK student Yasmin has been recently featured in a University of Sydney video, where she shares her thoughts about being an international student studying the Doctor of Dental Medicine in Australia.

Former OzTREKK student Yasmin Samiee

“I chose to study at the University of Sydney because the university and its dental school are ranked among the top fifty in the world for academic excellence. I was also drawn to the calibre of research and educational opportunities, which involves placements and service in under-served communities around Australia.

“I am grateful that we have been able to apply theoretical knowledge into practice so early in the course. By our third week of classes, we had already begun practicing dentistry on plastic models in our simulation clinic. Not only have we greatly improved our manual dexterity, we have become proficient and confident as clinicians. There is a strong sense of responsibility and ownership that accompanies this level of autonomy.”

Sydney Faculty of Dentistry lab’s 3D printing may revolutionise root canal therapy

Researchers have created 3D-printed artificial blood vessels that could revolutionize root canal therapy to help people retain fully functioning teeth.

Sydney Dental School

Professor Luiz Bardessono and his team published the breakthrough in Scientific Reports. He leads The Bertassoni Lab at Oregon Health and Science University and the Bioengineering Laboratory in the University of Sydney Faculty of Dentistry.

While current root canal therapy is effective in saving an infected or decayed tooth, the procedure may cause teeth to become brittle and susceptible to fracture over time.

Based on previous work fabricating artificial capillaries, the researchers placed a fibre mould made of sugar molecules across the root canal of extracted human teeth and injected a material similar to proteins found in the body filled with dental pulp cells.

The researchers removed the fiber to make a long microchannel in the root canal and inserted endothelial cells (cellls that are involved in filtering gases, fluid and molecules across cell membranes) isolated from the interior lining of blood vessels.

They then removed the fibre to make a long microchannel in the root canal and inserted endothelial cells isolated from the interior lining of blood vessels. After seven days, dentin-producing cells appeared near the tooth walls and artificial blood vessels formed inside the tooth.

Professor Bertassoni said the research proved artificial blood vessels can be used to treat root canals.

“This result proves that fabrication of artificial blood vessels can be a highly effective strategy for fully regenerating the function of the teeth.

“We believe that this finding may change the way that root canal treatments are done in the future,” said Professor Bertassoni.

Current root canal treatment involves removing infected dental tissues and replacing them with synthetic biomaterials covered by a protective crown, which often results in further decay over time.

“This process eliminates the tooth’s blood and nerve supply, rendering it lifeless and void of any biological response or defence mechanism.

“Without this functionality, adult teeth may be lost much sooner, which can result in much greater concerns, such as the need for dentures or dental implants,” he said.

Research at the Sydney Faculty of Dentistry

Sydney Dentistry’s multidisciplinary research approach brings together the complementary expertise of the university’s faculties, centres and institutes with that of their affiliated teaching hospitals, institutes and international research partnerships. Sydney dentistry researchers are not limited by the confines of the mouth, but enhance studies in fundamental cell biology, microbiology, molecular biology and biomechanics with their dental expertise—it is their goal to “put the mouth into health!”

Research areas

Dentistry research at the University of Sydney is structured around a number of cross-disciplinary themes that are focused on improving health outcomes. These themes encompass microbial pathogenicity, biomaterials, implant technology, cell biology, pathology, minimal intervention therapies for management of caries, education, and public health.

Sydney Faculty of Dentistry hosts Annual Dentistry Research Day

We are always impressed at the ability of our students, and once again, they’ve made us feel proud and delighted at their accomplishments!

On Thursday, Sept. 22, the Sydney Faculty of Dentistry hosted its annual Research Day at the Westmead Education and Conference Centre, where several former OzTREKK students were recognised.

Throughout the day, more than 400 students, University of Sydney staff and local health district employees attended the 22 presentations and viewed the 23 research posters, together these showcase the breadth and depth of research conducted by the University of Sydney.

The morning comprised oral presentations from dentistry staff and PhD students, with the afternoon sessions focusing on presentations from postgraduate and HDR students.

Presentations included

  • the impact of Big Data providing new opportunities for dental research in Australia;
  • brainstorming the future dental profession;
  • management of open bites;
  • bone tissue engineering applications;
  • intercellular cytoplasmic exchange; and
  • Role of cardiac transcription factor nkx2-5 in tongue development and regeneration—can tongue progenitors save the heart?

Research Day is recognised as important to Australia’s dentists, demonstrated by the generous support of the dental companies who sponsored the trade show, where networking during the breaks took place. A number of the presentations were recorded for podcasts by the ADA NSW for their recently developed series – The Dental Practitioner Podcast Series.

Prizes awarded during the day:

  • Best DMD Poster Presentation: Jane Chung, Jessica Fung, Ronald Ho and Claire Ko – Measuring the effect of acidic beverages on the torque to failure of resin modified glass ionomer (We spy some former OzTREKK dentistry students here!)
  • Best BOH Poster Presentation: Danya Darwiche and Marnie Hannon – Fresh start smiles for J&FMHN Long Bay correctional complex

Jaime’s adventures in Oz: Sydney!

So, what’s new?

Sydney Dental School

Enjoying the OzTREKK Welcome Breakfast

I can’t remember exactly where I left off but Sydney has been great! The students are amazing. Everyone is very friendly and really keen. The breakfast was quite busy and everyone seemed really happy to be there.

My favourite part of the OzTREKK Orientation was as the University of Sydney‘s Chris Lawrance and I were greeting people in the Sancta Sophia lobby, a girl walked in with her parents. I told them to go ahead and they could grab some food. They didn’t want to bother her and I told her that some other parents were sitting at a “parents” table. She turns back to them and holds up her hands and says, “Dad, I think I need to do this alone.” It was so adorable!

Sydney Medical School

OzTREKK’s tour of the University of Sydney hosted by Sydney’s Chris Lawrance

I then walked out with two parents back to the street and they were both raving about Adam and Sarah (one dentistry  and one medicine student) and all the support that OzTREKK provides to parents and families. So, thank you, both (and Nic, who works behind the scenes)!

A funny thing: Chris asked we start the tour early because he was driving to Adelaide afterwards and we talked about leaving at 10:30. When I introduced Chris at the breakfast, he clarified that everyone was to meet at the front door at precisely 9:50.

I chuckled.

Anyway, another student comes in about 9:45 and I said to him that he’s got a couple minutes to grab some food and then we’ll go out. It was funny because I assumed that 9:50 meant that we’d leave about 10  and Chris was giving time to coordinate 50+ people and fill up water bottles, etc. That was entirely incorrect and the tour started exactly at 9:50. I had to text to find out where they were (I was with the late-comer). I shouldn’t have been surprised!

Sydney Dental School

What a great pic of our OzTREKKers!

Anyway, Chris was really great and  encouraged students to join clubs, get out and meet other students, etc. The University of Sydney campus is giant (I forgot how big, actually, as it eclipses Melbourne) and so we didn’t go everywhere but it was OK. Chris had taken great lengths to get into MacLaurin Hall and the Great Hall on a Saturday, which was great. Suzanne (Semester in Australia) said those buildings are never open. I was actually getting a little bored waiting for the guy to unlock the room (we probably had to wait for 10 minutes, which Chris filled with history). I assumed the other students were, too. But every time I looked, they were totally engrossed in Chris’ story. Not to mention as soon as the rooms got opened, all cameras went up. It was a pano party!

We had a few students from last year and I noticed they came on the tour. I asked why they came and Mike says, “Are you kidding me? I’ve been here a year and I’ve never been able to get into this place. It’s kind of cool to see where we will graduate.” That was great. Oh and Chris was, obviously, the best tour guide of explaining interesting things about the room and the shields and the wood and the you-name-it.

Sydney Dental School

Time for the OzTREKK Shuttle!

After that it was OzTREKK Shuttle time. The shuttle in Sydney was very busy and there was lots of interest. I nearly lost my marbles after driving an hour to get to Costco (which is, like, 5 km away, but traffic was horrendous). I got over it, though. The 12-pack of croissants, chocolate protein powder and the roasted chickens seemed to be real hits at Costco. Anyway, I ran three full days of shuttle (starting around 8 on a couple of mornings and ending as late as 10 one night). I really liked that because I felt that this group made use of the shuttle the most! They were really great for me to get my feet wet, though. I now dream of the pathway between Abercrombie (a street where we’ve probably got 10+ students living) and IKEA or Costco. Oh yeah—IKEA was a very popular destination as well.

Sydney Dental School

The best chips in the world

Overall it’s going really well! All the students were really thankful for the help (without the van in Sydney, it virtually eliminates a Costco or IKEA visit) and, again, a lot of them made use of it, which was great!

Oh and I found the most delicious chips I’ve ever eaten in my life. They are “Red Rock Sweet Potato Crisps Green Chilli & Coriander.” That discovery made me quite happy and may impact my desire to be healthy on this trip. If I can manage to figure out a way, I’ll bring you guys some.

Seriously. Life changing.

Sydney Dentistry student shares her journey with OzTREKK

All of us at OzTREKK know the joy (and frustrations) of travelling, and we wouldn’t trade those experiences for anything! We love to encourage students to pursue their dreams of international study. Visiting different parts of the world and experiencing different cultures is one of the greatest gifts you can give to yourself. The world is such an amazing place, and when you study internationally, you enrich your life and experience different points of view, you gain a worldwide network of colleagues and friends, and you gain an experience that will stay with you for the rest of your life.

Taipei was one of Brett’s stops on her way to Sydney

New Sydney Dental School student Brett Baloun stepped out of her comfort zone and decided to leave Manitoba for the beautiful Australian harbour. Brett is now in settled in Sydney, pursuing her dream to become a dentist! Before being totally immersed in her studies, Brett decided to share her story of travelling to Australia and meeting fellow University of Sydney DMD students. We hope her story encourages you to pursue your dreams!

My trip from Brandon to Calgary, Vancouver to Taipei to Sydney was very long and very exhausting, but well worth the $1,100 flight cost. And travelling on my own in another country was a great experience. I was brave and travelled throughout Taipei going to the MaoKong Gondola, visiting temples, tea houses and the Beitou hot springs. It was actually easier to figure out the transit system there than it has been in Sydney!

University of Sydney Dental School

Sydney DMD students Brett Baloun and Paola Gjini both applied through OzTREKK

Although I missed the OzTREKK Welcome Breakfast, Matt was able to pick me up from the airport, so that was great! I arrived in time for Australia Day, January 26, and I was able to do some sightseeing.

The international students bonded quickly, before school even started. It seems like nearly everyone went through OzTREKK. The few who went through another company were far less prepared or organized, and definitely disappointed that they hadn’t been with OzTREKK, too.

The photo to the left is of Paola and me on our first day in the simulation clinic. Although we were just getting a basic orientation, everyone was very excited to finally feel like we were in dentistry after a long week of attending medical lectures!

Everything has gone pretty well, and although the faculty is a little more disorganized than we would like, we rely a lot on the upper years to help us figure out the set-up. The only people in a hurry down here seem to be the people trying to catch the train! Bit by bit, we’re figuring out what is expected of us and what we have in store. I’m sure it’s going to be a tough four years, but I am very glad I made the decision to come here and I very much appreciate all of OzTREKKs help! Without OzTREKK, I would not have considered applying to Australia. You guys made the process as simple as possible, and gave great and much-needed advice in all areas!

Sydney dentistry staff and students assist the homeless at volunteer event

A team of Bachelor of Oral Health students aided by the Dean and faculty staff, provided dental information and assistance to guests of the annual “Homeless Connect” volunteer event held at the Sydney Town Hall on June 4. Students gave important oral hygiene information to the many visitors, and identified people requiring urgent dental treatment. The guests were then taken for triage assessment by faculty alumni who attended with their mobile dental clinic and team. Essential dental treatment was provided on site to 35 homeless people.

Sydney Dental School students commented that the atmosphere within the Sydney Town Hall was very positive and productive. Questions fired at the Sydney dental students ranged from dental pain and oral hygiene to free dental service.

Another surprising discovery for the dentistry students included  learning that people in difficult circumstances often have no awareness of the services available to them and attempt to “self treat” their dental issues. They found that dispensing even the most basic of oral hygiene advice was greatly appreciated.

For many of the volunteers it wasn’t so much about increasing awareness or educating the masses about the importance of oral health and the services available, but being able to make a significant impact on the guests’ lives by supporting and believing in them. As a collective the students felt they had made a difference to the visitors and given them something to smile about.

The Sydney Homeless Connect event proved to be a profound experience for the Sydney dentistry students, leaving them humbled, rewarded and inspired by their participation.

About the Doctor of Dental Medicine Program

The University of Sydney’s Doctor of Dental Medicine is a graduate-entry dental program that focuses on teaching dental health with a strong emphasis on clinical skills. Throughout the four-year program, students develop their clinical skills through early patient-based teaching and are given the necessary foundations for independent learning through simulated exercises at a research hospital.

Application Timelines for the Sydney DMD Program

Application deadline for the 2014 intake: July 7, 2013 (All Sydney Dental School application documents must be received at the OzTREKK office by Friday, July 5 in order for them to be submitted to the university on time.)

Sydney dentistry researchers discover increase in dental decay

Have you ever heard of “Texas teeth”—teeth with lots of wide open spaces? Well, it seems that tooth decay is worse now than it was in prehistoric times!

University of Sydney Faculty of Dentistry researchers claim that prehistoric and medieval skeletons have revealed the incidence of dental decay could be worse than ever because of a decline in modern human’s oral microbiota levels.

Results of the four-year PhD study by Dr Christina Adler of the University of Sydney Faculty of Dentistry have been published online recently in the journal Nature Genetics.

A major shift in our dietary habits has altered the oral microbiota composition in our mouths said Sydney Dentistry Associate Lecturer Dr Adler, who worked with an international team including researchers from the University of Adelaide’s Australian Centre for Ancient DNA on the research project.

The team, including archaeologists and anthropologists, collected and analyzed calculus samples (calcified dental plaque) from skeletons dating from prehistoric and medieval times.

“The composition of oral microbiota underwent a distinct shift with the introduction of farming in the Neolithic era with the earlier hunter-gatherer groups displaying fewer caries (tooth decay)— and periodontal disease associated bacteria,” Dr Adler said.

“We found that the composition of oral microbiota remained surprisingly constant between Neolithic and Medieval times, after which cariogenic (tooth-decay promoting) bacteria became dominant, we think during the Industrial Revolution.”

Dr Adler said modern oral microbiotas are markedly less diverse than our historic populations and this might be contributing to the current state of chronic oral disease associated with post-industrial lifestyles.

“Imagine your mouth is like a forest,” Dr Adler said. “In the past our mouths were like a very diverse forest, with a huge variety of trees. Today our mouths are like a sparser and less varied forest, and with this loss of diversity we are less able to cope with stresses, and hence are more likely to be in a disease state.

“Caries (tooth decay) has become a major endemic disease, affecting sixty to ninety percent of school-aged children in industrialized countries, whilst periodontal disease occurs in five to twenty percent of the adult population worldwide. Importantly, oral bacteria are also associated with many systemic diseases including arthritis, cardiovascular disease and diabetes, in addition to diseases of the oral cavity, which gives this research further significance,” the Sydney Dentistry associate lecturer added.

About the University of Sydney Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD)

The University of Sydney‘s Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) is a graduate-entry dental program that focuses on teaching dental health with a strong emphasis on clinical skills. Throughout the four-year dental program, students develop their clinical skills through early patient-based teaching and are given the necessary foundations for independent learning through simulated exercises at a research hospital.

Entry Requirements for the Sydney Dentistry Program

Performance in an Undergraduate Degree

Students can apply to Sydney Dentistry if they have completed a bachelor’s degree in any discipline, and achieve a grade point average (GPA) of 5.5 out of 7.0 (or equivalent) from a recognized university. The grade requirement is generally equivalent to a GPA of 2.7 out of 4.0.

The GPA will be calculated on the last three full-time years, or six semesters, of the most recent bachelor’s degree, including an honours year if undertaken. Postgraduate research or coursework qualifications are excluded from the GPA calculation. There is no standardized GPA scale used by Canadian universities, and grading systems differ among post-secondary institutions here in Canada.

Students from a wide variety of undergraduate studies are welcome and encouraged to apply.

Program Prerequisite

Candidates are required to have completed a human biological science subject at a credit level, equivalent to the University of Sydney unit of study “Human Biology” (BIOL1003). This may be achieved as part of the undergraduate degree or may be studied on a non-degree basis through a winter or summer school program. A degree in medical science will be deemed equivalent.

Contact Broghan at OzTREKK to discuss whether you meet the Sydney DMD program prerequisite.

Performance in an Admissions Test: MCAT, Canadian DAT, US DAT, or GAMSAT

Students must achieve a minimum performance in one of the following admissions tests:

  • the Medical Colleges Admission Test (MCAT);
  • the Canadian Dental Aptitude Test (DAT);
  • the US Dental Admission Test (DAT); or
  • the Graduate Australian Medical Schools Admissions Test (GAMSAT).

Most Canadian applicants choose to sit the Medical Colleges Admission Test (MCAT) or the DAT. Any of the tests are acceptable, and there is no need to sit more than one of the above.

The minimum scores required to be considered for an interview:

  • MCAT: 8/8/M/8 or a computerized numerical aggregate of 24 with a grade of M
  • CDAT or DAT: minimum score of 15 in each section (carving score will not be used)
  • GAMSAT: a minimum level of 50 in each of the three sections

Test scores will not be considered if the exam results are more than two years old.

Performance in an Online Interview

The Multiple Mini-Interview (MMI) aims to sample a candidate’s competencies in order to gain a more accurate picture of strengths, weaknesses and suitability for the Sydney DMD program. International applicants’ interviews will be conducted via an online link using Skype.

Application deadline for the 2014 intake: June 28, 2013
