Dean’s Priority Fund

This fund is allocated at the Dean’s discretion to support faculty projects, and help advance the school’s immediate needs, such as research and travel opportunities for students.


Service to the Community

A first-class outreach program

With a goal of creating socially aware and culturally sensitive dental practitioners committed to improving access to oral health care, the Faculty has developed a multi-faceted community outreach program that offers free mobile and fixed location dental clinics to Montrealers in need of dental care.

Patients receive excellent care and in turn DMD students gain skills and experience from the procedures they perform, preparing them to become dentists.

Philanthropic Priorities: Service to the Community

The Faculty of Dental Medicine and Oral Health Sciences is eager to build on the success of its award-winning community outreach program, which provides experiential learning opportunities for dental medicine students and clinical care to an underserved population.

We are seeking funding for the required physical facilities, equipment and human resources that allow for us to bring these exceptional community service programs to the public.


Student Support

The Faculty of Dental Medicine and Oral Health Sciences is one of North America’s top dental faculties, recognized for its leadership in oral health education, scientific research and the promotion of oral health through its award-winning Service to the Community dental program.

Our undergraduate and graduate students rely heavily on financial aid in the form of bursaries, scholarships, awards, and prizes.

Undergraduate Students: In 2016, 80% of our dental medicine students relied on need-based government aid, and this number is steadily increasing. Across McGill, only 35% of students relied on need-based government aid.

Graduate Students: Within the past 10 years, the number of students enrolled in our graduate studies programs has increased 2.7 times in size, or at a rate of a 25% increase per year. Despite this increase, the number of Student Trainee Funding Possibilities – or Studentship Awards – has remained the same.

Philanthropic Priorities: Student Support

The Faculty of Dental Medicine and Oral Health Sciences seeks philanthropic support for bursaries, scholarships, awards and prizes to meet the steadily increasing demand for financial assistance from students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.



An abundance of research opportunities

McGill Faculty of Dental Medicine and Oral Health Sciences' research program is a leader in Canadian dental and oral health-related research. Our researchers lead and participate in several multidisciplinary research teams and centres, and are highly successful in terms of research funding and publications. Throughout the world they are involved in the research and scholarly community and in knowledge translation. At home, they train excellent graduate and postdoctoral students. 

Collaborative research programs

The Faculty of Dental Medicine and Oral Health Sciences is continuously developing and improving its research and teaching programs related to oral health. Researchers within the Faculty investigate a broad range of important oral health issues in both clinical and basic sciences, with many interdisciplinary collaborations.

Philanthropic Priorities: Innovative Research

Philanthropic support plays an important role in jumpstarting new areas of research that do not receive government funding, or other high-risk/high-reward research initiatives.

This funding helps our researchers to excel and to train and prepare the researchers of tomorrow. It also helps them to disseminate and translate their research results into practice and influence decision makers in industry and government.


​Facility Fund

The Undergraduate Teaching Clinic, preclinical simulation laboratory, clinical/community research unit and administrative operations moved in 2014 to a modern building located at 2001 McGill College Avenue, where it occupies three floors. With this move, the Faculty ushered in a new era of dental education, clinical care, research and service to the community.

The state of the art facilities has 8,200 square feet of ergonomically-designed, open operatory clinical space and over 4,000 square feet of classroom space.
