The Oral Health Centre of Western Australia

WA's tertiary training centre for dentistry

The Oral Health Centre of Western Australia is a state-of-the-art dental teaching and learning facility united with an oral healthcare clinic, and the only institution in the State offering tertiary training in dentistry.

It provides dental services to eligible members of the public, which ensures students have access to suitable patients to develop the necessary skills and aptitudes of oral health practitioners.

UWA’s Dental School believes students learn best when teaching and learning methods focus on student-centred approaches.

Students learn either by treating patients under close supervision by highly experienced and skilled tutors, or by observing general and specialist dentists treating a wide range of dental conditions.

The Oral Health Centre of Western Australia provides modern clinical facilities, laboratories with cutting-edge equipment, clinical teaching and computing facilities, as well as access to the broader facilities of UWA.
