Uni Adelaide celebrates its dental school’s century
There’s a dinner in October and a seminar on what next.
It could have all been worse for the state’s only and one of the world’s leading dental schools, first in Australia and 29th in the world in last month’s ARWU discipline ranking. Back in 2014 the Labor state government talked about pulling the public dental service contract from Uni Adelaide and there were rumours that Uni South Australia was interested. It was all connected to the cost of making space for the state dental clinic in the new Royal Adelaide Hospital complex. Then Uni Adelaide VC Warren Bebbington, a bloke who knows how many beans make five, found $50m to fund space for 30 years.
