The Orthodontics program covers all basic and applied aspects of the discipline, through a combination of lectures, seminars, tutorials, clinical training and case presentations.

These areas of study include cephalometric theory and practice, craniofacial anatomy, development and morphology, biological force systems and their application, radiology and radiography techniques. Major clinical pursuits include orthodontics, diagnosis and management of dental and craniofacial anomalies, cleft lip and palate, and interdisciplinary management of complex malocclusions.

Your clinical work will be undertaken at the Oral Health Centre on UQ’s Herston campus and in conjunction with the Cleft Lip and Palate Service at Queensland Children's Hospital (formerly Lady Cilento Children's Hospital), and orthognathic surgery through the Maxillofacial Unit (Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital).
