About Dentistry

About Dentistry

M.Sc. in Dental Sciences

The goal of this program is to train students in research in the dental sciences, which comprise a number of disciplines relating to the functioning of the oro-facial complex.

For the Thesis Master’s in Dental Sciences, we aim to train students to:

  1. perform a literature review;
  2. identify important issues in a specific field and understand the scientific approach to research questions;
  3. carry out a scientific study and appropriately manage its data;
  4. appreciate the ethics involved in animal and/or human research; and
  5. express oneself clearly in science (when speaking and writing).

M.Sc. in Dental Sciences, Option in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

A residency training program in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery provides candidates with a comprehensive background for the practice of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery as a specialty.

During the four years of the program, candidates serve as residents principally at the Montreal General Hospital. During this time, residents are given increasing responsibility for the care of in-patients and out-patients, as well as being required to fulfil certain basic science courses and other assignments. A research project must be undertaken, followed by a master's thesis.

The program is open to one candidate per year.

Master of Science (M.Sc.) Dental Sciences (Thesis) (45 credits)

The goal of this program is to train students in research in the dental sciences, which comprise a number of disciplines relating to the functioning of the oro-facial complex.

Master of Science (M.Sc.) Dental Sciences (Thesis): Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (46 credits)

McGill University, through the Faculty of Dentistry and the McGill University Health Centre, offers an advanced education program in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. The program is fully accredited by the Canadian Dental Association Accreditation Committee. It is a four-year program and commences on July 1 of each year.

Master of Science (M.Sc.) Dental Sciences (Non-Thesis) (45 credits)

This Non-Thesis M.Sc. program offers students the possibility to explore new information on various research topics to supplement existing education. Students are able to "sample" various research areas without committing to a specific research topic or project by entering either the Basic Science stream or the Clinical and Populational Health stream. All non-thesis students are encouraged to seek volunteer and summer research opportunities with researchers in the Faculty to further their research experience.

This program provides students a great opportunity to clarify their interests, connect with faculty members, and engage with their cutting-edge research programs to seek additional career and training options (such as entering a Ph.D. program). This non-thesis option is not a residency program and does not provide clinical qualifications.
