Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS)

The Faculty of Dentistry offers a four-year, fully-accredited Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) program, designed to graduate competent general dentists who will be ethical, compassionate, caring, knowledgeable, and skilled practitioners. We also offer a two-year DDS Qualifying program that prepares graduates of international dental programs to become certified to practise dentistry in Canada.
