About Dentistry

Master of Science (M.Sc) Dental Sciences (Thesis)

The goal of this program is to train students in research in the dental sciences, which comprise a number of disciplines relating to the functioning of the oro-facial complex.

For the Thesis Master’s in Dental Sciences, we aim to train students to:

  1. perform a literature review;
  2. identify important issues in a specific field and understand the scientific approach to research questions;
  3. carry out a scientific study and appropriately manage its data;
  4. appreciate the ethics involved in animal and/or human research; and
  5. express themselves clearly when speaking and writing about science.
Master of Science (M.Sc.) Dental Sciences (Non-Thesis) (45 credits)

The Non-Thesis M.Sc. program offers students the possibility to supplement their existing education by exploring a variety of research topics. The Non-Thesis program focuses on research and/or clinical expertise to improve populational health, including diagnosis, prevention, monitoring and control. The program includes a practicum in an organization or a clinic implicated in providing public health servicesAll non-thesis students are encouraged to seek volunteer and summer research opportunities with researchers in the Faculty to further their research experience.

This program offers students a great opportunity to clarify their interests, connect with faculty members, and engage with their cutting-edge research programs to seek additional career and training options (such as entering a Ph.D. program). This non-thesis option is not a residency program and does not provide clinical qualifications.

Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) Oral Health Sciences

A thesis for the doctoral degree must constitute original scholarship and must be a distinct contribution to knowledge. It must show familiarity with previous work in the field and must demonstrate ability to plan and carry out research, organize results, and defend the approach and conclusions in a scholarly manner. The research presented must meet current standards of the discipline; as well, the thesis must clearly demonstrate how the research advances knowledge in the field. Finally, the thesis must be written in compliance with norms for academic and scholarly expression and for publication in the public domain.
