The Good Universities Guide – Education and Training for a Dentist
To become a dentist, you usually have to complete a degree in dentistry, dental science or dental surgery at university. Alternatively, you can complete a degree in a related field followed by a postgraduate qualification in dentistry, dental surgery or dental medicine. Prerequisite subjects, or assumed knowledge, in one or more of English, mathematics, biology, chemistry and physics are normally required. Entry is highly competitive, and you usually need to sit the Undergraduate Medicine and Health Sciences Admission Test (UMAT) and attend a structured interview. You may also be required to complete a structured oral assessment. Universities have different prerequisites, and some have flexible entry requirements. Contact the institutions you are interested in for more information. Find out more - https://www.gooduniversitiesguide.com.au/careers-guide/browse/dentist.
