TAFE Queensland offers courses in dental assisting, dental technology, and dental prosthetics. Dental assistants work alongside dentists and assist with dental radiography, oral healthcare procedures, and sterilising equipment. Dental technicians construct models and custom impression trays, build removable acrylic dentures and alloy frames, and make crown and bridge structures. Dental prostheticians provide complete and partial dentures, dental appliances, and mouth-guards to the public.

There is expected to be strong growth in the oral healthcare industry over the next five years due to the ageing population and the increasing number of consumers with private health insurance extras cover.

TAFE Queensland has a great reputation for providing practical and industry-focused training. As a TAFE Queensland dental student you'll study in our fully-equipped, state-of-the-art dental clinic and get experience from industry placements. Graduating diploma students will also be eligible for provisional registration with the Dental Technicians and Dental Prosthetics Board of Queensland.
