About Dentist jobs in Australia

Find dentist jobs, careers and vacancies in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and across all cities in Australia.


Purpose and Mission

Dentists are highly trained medical professionals who focus on teeth and gums. The primary duties of a dentist include diagnosing and treating injuries, chronic conditions and abnormalities of the teeth and gums. While most dentists practise general dentistry, some choose to specialise in orthodontics, forensic dentistry or dental surgery.

Some of the common activities of dentists include repairing or pulling broken and decayed teeth, treating diseases of the roots or nerves, cleaning teeth and gums, filling cavities and designing and fitting dental crowns, bridges and dentures.

Reports To

The large majority of dentists work in a private practice. Most dentists therefore do not report directly to any individual, but they are supervised by the board of the practise. Dentists who are employed at community clinics, nursing homes and as employees at larger dental practises may report to a mid-level supervisor or office manager.

Supervisory Responsibilities

Dentists often have major supervisory responsibilities, especially those operating their own practice or participating in the management of a practice, as they typically supervise at least a half-dozen professional and administrative staff.

Qualifications

Dentists have earned a bachelor degree as well as completed a four-year Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree. Your undergraduate degree can be in any field, but chemistry or biology is recommended to make sure you are ready for highly competitive dental school.

Also of note, all dentists must be registered with the Dental Board of Australia to be able to practice in Australia. 

Responsibilities of a Dentist

Dentists perform a broad range of tasks related to the prevention and treatment of diseases of the teeth and gums. Specific professional activities commonly undertaken by dentists include:

  • diagnosing dental diseases using techniques such as radiography, salivary tests and medical histories
  • providing preventative oral health care including periodontal treatments, fluoride applications and oral health advice
  • providing restorative oral care that might include implants, complex crown and bridge restorations, as well as orthodontics and various methods to repair damaged and decayed teeth
  • providing oral surgical treatments including the biopsy of tissues and prescribing medications
  • performing routine orthodontic treatment such as adjusting braces, fitting retainers, and so forth
  • improving oral function with the use of both removable and fixed oral prostheses
  • helping diagnose diseases having oral symptoms such as diabetes
  • educating patients in regard to good oral hygiene habits
  • leading a dental team including dental hygienists, dental therapists, dental assistants and various dental specialists.
