Program Information

School:Faculty of Dentistry at the University of Toronto
Field of Study:Dentistry (DDS, DMD)
Description:The dental course is designed to unify the fundamental sciences and dental studies, as it is believed that scientific and professional development cannot be sharply differentiated, but should proceed concurrently throughout the entire dental course.

In the first year the student is taught many of the basic science courses which are the foundation for clinical dentistry. In these courses every opportunity is taken to introduce dentally relevant material. At the same time the student is introduced to some of the broader concepts of the practice of dentistry. An important aspect of this first year is the student's introduction to dental materials and the technical aspects of restorative dentistry. In these courses particular attention is paid to evaluating digital skills so that students with potential problems in this area can be identified.
