Dr. Bassel Kano is an Endodontist and Associate Professor in the Faculty of Dentistry. He teaches all aspects of endodontics as part of the DMD II, DMD III and DMD IV curriculum.
His teaching interests include micro-endodontics and surgical micro-endodontics. The introduction of the dental operating microscope in the late 1990’s transformed the specialty of endodontics by allowing the practitioner to make a more accurate diagnosis, improved the understanding of the root morphology and increased the success rate of treatments. Dr Kano uses the microscope throughout his courses and during live presentations in the pre-clinical lab and on patients in the Undergraduate Teaching Clinic. The new facility is equipped with three dental operating microscopes. The dental students benefit from this tool by seeing step-by-step, in high magnification the surgical and non-surgical procedures.
Dr. Kano attended Boston University where he received his dental degree and post-graduate endodontic training. He joined McGill University in 2007 as a clinical instructor and lecturer. In 2011, he was appointed Assistant Professor and Director of the Division of Endodontics.
In 2013, Dr. Kano received the WW Wood award for excellence in dental education.
