Welcome to ACODS
The Australasian Council of Dental Schools (ACODS) was first established in 2007 with the aim to collaborate with stakeholders and to enable informed decision-making in the area of Oral Health Education in Australia & New Zealand.
ACODS consists of the Deans and Heads of Dental and Oral Health education providers in Australia and New Zealand, which includes dentistry, dental hygiene, dental therapy, oral health therapy, dental prosthetics, and dental technology.
In 2010, ACODS has become an incorporated body and is committed to the continuous development of dental, oral health, and dental technology education in Australia and New Zealand. Our focus is to train graduates who are competent and dedicated not only to provide outstanding oral health services, but also to improve the health and well-being of the broader community.
As the Inaugural President, I welcome you to collaborate with ACODS. We look forward to working with you to improve dental and oral health education in Australia and New Zealand.
Please contact us if we can assist and/or collaborate with your group.
