Dentistry (DDS, DMD)
Description:Founded in 1904, the Faculty of Dentistry educates leading oral physicians with a curriculum that emphasizes oral health and disease prevention. At the Faculty, students learn to manage complex problems rarely seen in traditional school clinics. They witness cutting-edge research first-hand, thanks to state-of-the-art facilities for periodontal and bone studies, and with unparalleled opportunities for clinical experience, students gain the skills and knowledge they need to provide comprehensive health care to their patients.

Five-Year Undergraduate Program: Only applicants who are enrolled in the final year of the Sciences profile at a Quebec CEGEP are eligible for the five-year program. Students first complete a dental preparatory (DENT-P) year in the Faculty of Science, and then proceed into the first year of the four-year program.

Four-Year Undergraduate Program: Leading to the degree of DMD, basic and applied sciences are taught in conjunction with the Faculty of Medicine in the first 18 months of the program. Students then complete 7 months of pre-clinical training followed by 2 years of clinical training.
