Take a quick peek at some of our students and staff in action during the Explore Careers in Health Dental Workshops. This event was organised by Medicine Community Outreach Projects (C.O.P.), MSS, the Faculty of Medicine's Office of Admissions, Equity and Diversity in collaboration with our Faculty. We were fortunate to have Dr. Greg Frazer with us that day. Dr. Frazer is a member of the Six Nations Mohawk Territory, a 1982 Faculty of Dentistry Alumnus as well as an Endodontist.


The Faculty of Dentistry encourages students from various backgrounds to apply. Prospective applicants are advised to pursue courses of study, whether in the humanities, the social or the natural sciences, that appeal to them. The Faculty aims to graduate socially aware, culturally sensitive and community-oriented practitioners who are committed to improving access to oral health care. Developing interpersonal skills such as active listening, communicating, affective empathy and compassion are important if you select dentistry as a career.

The Dental Students' Society has voted that as of September 2014, incoming dental students will pay $5000 per year throughout the four years of their program as a contribution towards the new Faculty of Dentistry facility. Please visit this section of our website for more information about this new project

Entrance bursaries are available to students from modest income families once they have been accepted to our undergraduate dental programs. For more information, please contact our Scholarships and Student Aid Office.
