Program Information
Faculty: Faculty of Dentistry
Degree: Doctorate
Field of Study: Dental Clinical Sciences, General (MS, PhD)
Description The Faculty of Dentistry offers advanced study in three main areas. Research in Population Health explores the complex interactions (social, cultural, environmental) that affect the oral health of individuals, communities, and populations. Oral-health-related clinical research includes both interventional and observational studies focusing on disease prevention, diagnosis, risk, treatment, prognosis, and health care. Basic science research in the areas of biomaterials, cell biology, developmental biology, microbiology, and molecular biology is available. The program is research-oriented, consisting of didactic courses and original research carried out under supervision. It is not a clinical program leading to clinical specialization, and is unrelated to licensure. In addition, the Faculty provides an opportunity for qualified students to enter combined programs leading to certification in a dental specialty in conjunction with this degree.
