Dentistry

​​​​www.dentistry.utoronto.ca

The Faculty of Dentistry offers a graduate program leading to either a Master of Science or Doctor of Philosophy degree. This graduate program appeals to:

  • applicants who have a degree in dentistry and who are pursuing research training and advanced clinical education leading to qualification in one of 10 dental specialty disciplines; and

  • applicants, both dentists and non-dentists, who are pursuing graduate research training without advanced clinical education.

Consequently, both the MSc and the PhD degrees have a common core of coursework and consist of three options, with each having varying additional research and training requirements.
