Meet Bachelor of Oral Health student, Laura James

“After I decided that I wanted to become an oral health therapist I researched the education institutes and found that Melbourne had some of the best facilities and teaching environments for oral health. After graduation, I hope to work in both public and private practice to get the best experience I can in all areas. I would then like to focus on health promotion and help people from disadvantaged areas.”

Meet Bachelor of Oral Health student, Simon Chiem

“My lecturers are incredibly invested in my study, clinical work and placements. It’s amazing to have such a great support network at your disposal. The highlight of the course for me has been my clinical placement at the Royal Melbourne Dental Hospital. After graduation, I would like to pursue a career in both public and private dentistry, with particular interest in the paediatric field.”
