||The Doctor of Dental Surgery Advanced Placement Program was instituted in 2000 and the first class graduated in 2002. The DDS Advanced Placement program is a special university program held over a minimum of two academic years leading to the DDS Degree. The program is intended for graduates of non-accredited dental programs, i.e. educational programs that have not been recognized by the Commission of Dental Accreditation for Canada (CDAC) or the Commission of Dental Accreditation for the United States (CODA). Its purpose is to prepare dentists to take the examinations of the National Dental Examining Board of Canada (NDEB), the same examinations that graduates of accredited dental programs must take to obtain certification. Upon successful completion of the DDS Advanced Placement Program and the NDEB examinations, the candidate will be eligible for licensure/registration as a dentist subject to provincial regulations in Canada.
