Welcome to Melbourne Dental School

Students are required to observe standards consistent with the privilege of treating patients. Being constantly under scrutiny, not only in the clinics, but generally moving about the public thoroughfares of the Dental School/Hospital building, it is important to observe UoM guidelines. Students are required to dress professionally when in the building and present for any clinical business or interactions with patients. Professional dress and behaviour conveys an appropriate impression when handling patients' needs. The requirements for dress and conduct of students have been produced after consultation between staff and students.

In order to avoid unnecessary embarrassment, which may be caused by disciplinary action, Students must observe these requirements at ALL times when in the Dental School/Hospital building.

Students MUST follow these requirements or may not be permitted to participate in classes.
