HISTORY OF THE BENDIGO ORAL HEALTH & DENTISTRY SOCIETY
Since then, BOHDS has continued to grow and develop further as a society. As of 2012 the dentistry program reached the major milestone of becoming a fully accredited course by the Australian Dental Council. This also meant that BOHDS had student members spanning year 1-5 of the dentistry program and year 1-3 of the oral health program.
