Seminar series

The School of Dentistry Seminar Series is an opportunity to highlight outstanding research both within the School and from national and international guest speakers.

All are welcome to attend, including academic and professional staff, visitors, students, industry partners, dental industry professionals and the general public. Seminars are held at various times at the Oral Health Centre, Herston, and online.

In addition to our general School series, additional seminars will be presented by our various research groups.
