Timo Ohlsen came to RMIT to progress his dental career from technician to a prosthetist by studying the Advanced Diploma of Dental Prosthetics.
Advanced Diploma of Dental Prosthetics
It became clear to me that the interaction with patients and to experience their new smile was something I wanted to be part of.
Working as a dental technician I was involved in the technical component of the creation of dental restorations but didn’t have the direct interaction with patients.
I wanted to share my patient’s excitement as they receive their new dentures and experience the joy of improving the quality of their life.
RMIT was highly recommended by my peers in the industry. I moved from WA to Melbourne to study here after visiting on Open Day to view the modern facilities at the Royal Dental Hospital of Melbourne.
The Advanced Diploma of Dental Prosthetics is a very challenging course in many aspects.
I highly recommend any future student to get as much technical experience under their belt as a dental technician before enrolling in this program.
The program has taken me already to land my dream job, working as dental prosthetist in a quality-oriented private practice. I am hoping to gain invaluable experience in my new role, to grow as a dental health care professional and become a respected leader in the field.
