Dentistry 報考牙科

牙科是有關口腔顎面範圍的醫學,研究口腔顎面的疾病、外傷症狀、病因及對人體的影響,並加以預防、診斷及治療。牙醫研究的領域不限於牙齒,科目包括牙齒矯正科、口腔頜面外科、牙周治療科、牙髓治療科專科、兒童齒科、修復齒科、家庭牙醫科、社會牙醫科等。修讀牙科的要求及時間不比醫科少,不單成績及英語要求非常高,更要熟識操作各種工具及儀器。

此外,牙醫是一種需要與人高度互動的職業,除專業知識與靈活技巧外,牙醫需要具備高情商和同理心。因此,正面開朗的個性、不怕生、喜歡與人交往,均是成為牙醫的條件。

牙科不是可以單獨完成的工作,更需要團隊合作照顧病人,例如訂做牙套、植牙、換齒後學習說話等。整個團隊包括牙醫助理、牙科衛生學家(dental hygienists)、牙科技術員(dental technicians)、牙科治療師(dental therapists)等。

To practise as a dentist in Australia you must complete an accredited university degree in dentistry, be registered with the Dental Board of Australia and meet the standards for re-registration every year.

Register with the Dental Board of Australia

Once you have graduated with a degree in dentistry, it’s a legal requirement to register with the Dental Board of Australia before you can practise.

Information on student registration and information for graduates registering with the Board for the first time can be found on the AHPRA Dental Board website.

Accredited Dental Programs Australia 

To apply to register as an oral health practitioner under the Health Practitioners Competence Assurance Act 2003, you must meet these criteria:

  • you must be fit for registration
  • you must have a prescribed qualification
  • if you don’t have a prescribed qualification, you must have a qualification that’s assessed as being equivalent to, or as satisfactory as, a prescribed qualification for your scope of practice
  • you must be competent to practise within that scope of practice.

Your qualifications may be recognised in New Zealand

You can apply for registration as a dentist or a dental specialist if you have a prescribed qualification. 

  • Bachelor of Dental Surgery, University of Otago

Registering with a prescribed qualification

If your qualification is not prescribed, you have two choices

  • sit an examination
  • apply to have your overseas, non-prescribed qualifications, training and experience assessed.

You can sit an examination

If you want to register as a dentist, and you do not have a prescribed qualification, you can undertake the New Zealand Dentist Registration Examination (NZDREX). This is done through the National Dental Examining Board of Canada.
