The DHSV OTC program (operating since 1992), and is based at Victoria's leading dental teaching facility, The Royal Dental Hospital of Melbourne (RDHM), which works in partnership with Melbourne University, RMIT University and La Trobe University.

The Orientation Training courses have been designed by Dental Health Services Victoria (DHSV) to help international dental graduates refresh their knowledge and skills before sitting the Australian Dental Council examination.

DHSV has maintained a close watch on changes to the ADC process and have modified our programs to meet the new requirements.

From June 2014 Practical exams have been conducted in the new format. They go for two days and do not include any patient contact.

For more information regarding changes to the ADC requirements please go to the following link:

More changes to the content of the courses will be made based on candidates' feedback and available information about the ADC exams.
