A message from Dean Emami

I am delighted to welcome you to the Faculty of Dental Medicine and Oral Health Sciences at McGill University.

Respecting and valuing inclusion and diversity, our Faculty hosts Canadian and international students who are passionate about the science and art of Dentistry, who are committed to promoting global oral health and who are curious about discoveries, research and innovation.

We want our students to have an enriching experience during the years they spend at our Faculty, and to leave us not only with accumulated knowledge and skills but as happy people. The great sense of pride and belonging, and the strong bonds between our students and Faculty which remain constant even after graduation, mean a lot to us: our students are confident and highly satisfied with the quality of their education.  

The Faculty has invested in state-of-the-art facilities and high-end research laboratories, and has gathered energetic, supportive staff and highly knowledgeable educators with national and international standing to inspire and prepare undergraduate and graduate dental students for their future roles in a rapidly evolving society.

Through a wide array of programs, dynamic, innovative  and challenging learning strategies and interdisciplinary resources, our students will acquire the skills and transversal abilities to lead the profession in a socially responsible manner, to address global disparity in oral health,  to  conduct ground-breaking research that informs dental practice, and finally to exchange knowledge to influence oral health care policies.

Our Alumni have made us proud with their significant contribution to the well-being of our population, the quality of their patient-centred care, their community engagement and their scientific accomplishments. We are thankful for their generosity and commitment to supporting the Faculty.

I invite you to come and visit our Faculty, its community-based clinics, and our departments in affiliated hospitals, or to explore our website to discover what it means to be a McGill student at the Faculty of Dental Medicine and Oral Health Sciences.

We look forward to welcoming you.
