Jordan Hawkins - Student Profile

“They made the dental school experience that much more enjoyable and I have benefitted greatly from their teachings both clinically and professionally.”

Jordan’s interest in dentistry all started after breaking his front teeth during a game of basketball. After receiving amazing care from his dentist and other specialists, he was hooked on dentistry.

Jordan chose to study at the Melbourne Dental School based on the school’s reputation and was impressed by the passion and dedication shown by the academic staff.

“They made the dental school experience that much more enjoyable and I have benefitted greatly from their teachings both clinically and professionally.”

From day one, Jordan knew he was in the right place. “I found almost everything about dentistry fascinating. Seeing my first patient and doing fillings in the pre-clinic laboratories were particularly exciting.”

The Melbourne Dental Student Society provided Jordan with a great support network through his studies, as well as many memorable events, such as boat cruises, balls and cocktail evenings.

After graduating, Jordan now works as a General Dentist at Camberwell Dental Group and Monash University Health Services. “I perform everything from regular check-ups and cleans to root canals, extractions and more. I really enjoy the support and ongoing commitment to learning that I receive from the other dental practitioners.”

“Before I started dental school, the teeth were what inspired me to become a dentist. However, the more I practice dentistry, the more the people I meet and the relationships I form with them are what inspires me.”
