Bachelor of Dental Surgery
Duration: 5 Years Intakes: Mar
Fees: NZ$100,085* /yearly average
Dentistry is not just about teeth, but all the oral and maxillofacial tissues—and it is increasingly being recognised that good oral health is important for good general health.
Dentists prevent oral diseases, and diagnose and treat pre-existing conditions. Dentists have many roles: they may have a family dental practice, they may specialise in high-tech implants and restorative procedures, and they may work with medically or socially-disadvantaged patients.
As a graduate there are opportunities for full-time or part-time work in New Zealand or overseas; and opportunities include private general or specialist practice, academic careers, or hospital-based practice.
