This degree is designed for someone who is looking for a pure clinical qualification working directly with patients. It will suit someone interested in working as an independent clinician to diagnose, design, manufacture and fit removable dentures. It would also suit students who have a recognised Dental Technology Bachelor degree who are ready to upgrade to a clinical qualification. Graduates from the Bachelor of Oral Health in Dental Technology at Griffith University should apply for this degree to gain a Dental Prosthetist qualification and can apply for credit towards the program.

Through coursework and supervised clinical practice, Dental Prosthetists are educated in all facets of removable dental prosthetics in an inter-professional setting, learning and working alongside other dental and health care professionals. This degree is not suited to pursuing a Dentistry or Dental Technology qualification and does not include the complex crown and bridge components which are covered in the dual Bachelor of Dental Technology/Bachelor of Dental Prosthetics (1580) degree.

A number of key benefits set Griffith’s Dental Prosthetist education apart from other teaching institutions. Students develop advanced critical analytical skills to solve difficult technical and clinical situations. They learn in an inter-professional environment from experienced dental prosthetists and specialists in their field such as:

  • Oral Pathology
  • Pharmacology
  • Radiology
  • Prosthodontist

Dental Prosthetic students practice alongside Dentistry students to develop communication and collaboration skills in individual cases. Whether this is inserting and monitoring immediate dentures or witnessing a variety of complex dental procedures. This process is managed through the Team Based Treatment Planning Process which develops patient referral skills.

My career opportunities

With this qualification, graduates will find employment opportunities in the public and private health sectors through government health department clinics and private practice as a Dental Prosthetist or Clinical Dental Technician.

Prosthodontic Technician and Clinician (Removable Prosthodontics)

Dental Prosthetists work directly with patients to provide removable partial dentures and the prosthodontic technician designs and fabricates the full and partial dentures in plastic or alloy. Graduates will be well equipped for the variety of procedures and techniques to replace missing teeth and will work alongside Dentists and Prosthodontists.

Self-employment

Graduates will gain an understanding of the operational issues involved in establishing a new business. Graduates may own and operate a dental laboratory or clinic. Graduates can progress onto employment in management roles such as senior or chief technician or prosthetists positions; quality control technicians/prosthetist; teaching or dental sales.

Research opportunities

Graduates can apply to progress their research skills through an Honours, Masters or PhD qualification which may lead to various roles in academia, large-scale organisations (corporations/companies, government departments, non-profit/charity organisation).

International opportunities

Graduates will be equipped to apply for dental technician registration in other countries. They will have gained the necessary knowledge and skills to adapt to the examination process required for registration.

Pathways to further study

Graduates from the Bachelor of Dental Prosthetics may be eligible to proceed to Honours.
