Bachelor of Dental Surgery

James Cook University (JCU) established its Dentistry program in 2008 in response to the challenges and oral health needs of northern Australia. With a focus on tropical, rural and Indigenous practice the course offers:

  • All new facilities – the $75 million dental teaching complex on the Cairns campus is impressive and includes a state-of-the-art clinical simulation laboratory.
  • Early clinical experience – you’ll gain real-life experience at our dental clinics on campus in Cairns and Townsville that provide dental care to the public. You’ll also gain experience at private practices and in rural and remote community health facilities across Australia.
