DMD Advanced Standing for Foreign Trained Dentists Pathway

IMPORTANT NOTE: For future admission cycles, the Advanced Dental Admission Test (ADAT) will be required to apply to our DMD Advanced Standing for Foreign Trained Dentist pathway. The NDEB Assessment of Fundamental Knowledge (AFK) will not be considered anymore. 

The DMD Advanced Standing for Foreign Trained Dentists Pathway is intended for graduates of international dental programs that are not accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation of Canada (CDAC). Internationally trained dentists that would like to complete their Doctor of Dental Medicine (D.M.D.) degree should apply for this program.

Successful candidates will be awarded their D.M.D. degree after completing 2.5 years of the D.M.D. Program. Students accepted into the DMD Advanced Standing for Foreign Trained Dentists Pathway are placed in the second half of the second year of the 4-year DMD program.

The number of positions available for this pathway varies every year depending on the space available. Successful candidates will begin the program in early December.

Space availability: At this time, we expect to have between 1 to 4 seats available for the Winter 2022 entry. Seat availability depends on completion of a construction project in the Simulation Laboratory.
