The Double Degree Dentistry program comprises a three-year undergraduate degree in science followed by the four-year Doctor of Dental Medicine. The Doctor of Dental Medicine curriculum emphasises practical delivery and prepares graduates for dental practice.
In order to progress to the Doctor of Dental Medicine, you need to meet all progression requirements (including satisfactorily completing a unit of study in Dentistry) during your first-degree, as specified under the Bachelor of Science/Doctor of Dental Medicine course rules.
You will then be able to begin the Doctor of Dental Medicine without being required to sit for the Graduate Australian Medical School Admissions Test (GAMSAT) or the University Clinical Aptitude Test (UCAT) or participate in the selection process for entry into the Doctor of Dental Medicine.
Refer to 513910 for the Bachelor of Science. All students must take some units of study in Mathematics and Biology throughout the Bachelor of Science.
For Doctor of Dental Medicine: Leadership, communication and professionalisation, Prevention and health promotion, Clinical sciences and clinical skills, Evidence based practice, Social and cultural oral health, Oral and systemic biosciences, interprofessional teamwork
Clinical dental practitioner, dental academic, dental researcher
Graduates of the Doctor of Dental Medicine are eligible to apply for registration with the Dental Board of Australia. Canadian students can undertake the examination of the National Dental Examining Board of Canada, to gain registration and practice in their home country.
Practical experience commences in the first year of the Doctor of Dental Medicine and increases throughout the program. Practical experience includes simulation practice, patient treatment in dental clinics and rural placement.
The Australian Government subsidises the tuition fee for this course. The remaining balance is paid by the student. Current University of Sydney fee information.
Additional selection criteria: Entry to the Double Degree Dentistry program is extremely competitive. Selection is on the basis of your ATAR (expected to be 99.70 for 2024 entry) and performance in an assessment process, including a written assessment and a panel discussion session, where you may be asked to demonstrate a firm commitment to the study of dentistry and a career in dentistry. The assessments will be held from December 2023 and you will be contacted by text message, email or telephone if you are eligible. Note that meeting the minimum ATAR for consideration does not guarantee an invitation to the assessment process. Assessment dates are not negotiable and eligible Year 12 candidates must attend the first assessment day after the release of their ATAR results.
You are only eligible for admission to the first available course intake following receipt of your final results. If your results are not available in time to be considered for the 2024 intake (i.e. prior to the issue of invitations to the January 2024 assessment) you may be eligible to apply for the 2025 intake.
