Certificate (Cert.) Craniofacial Orthodontics (70 credits)

The Faculty of Dentistry offers a Craniofacial Orthodontics program, which combines a certificate in Craniofacial Orthodontics with the M.Sc. in Dental Sciences.

This 36-month program is designed specifically for future academic-practitioners interested in practising in a hospital or academic environment. Students will split their time between clinic, classroom, and research. A significant amount of time will be devoted to basic, clinical, and health and society research.

Studies take place in a hospital environment, allowing residents to become part of a true multidisciplinary team including orthognathic surgery, prosthodontics, trauma, sleep disorders, and oro-facial pain. Emphasis will be placed on treatment of complex craniofacial cases.

A strong interest in research and academia from the candidates is essential. Preference will be given to candidates with such an interest and those that have a sponsorship agreement with the Faculty of Dentistry to support them throughout the program.

Supporting Documents

Applicants are required to use the document upload feature on Minerva to ensure their documents are added to their file. All documents can be uploaded except for letters of reference; these need to be sent in PDF format directly by the referees (using a professional email address) to marie.vigouroux [at] mcgill.ca. Do NOT mail or fax a copy of the documents that you have already uploaded to your application—doing so will slow down the review of your application.

Official copies of transcripts can be sent to the McGill Documentation Centre:

  • McGill University – Enrolment Services
  • Student Records
  • 3415 McTavish Street
  • Room MS 13
  • Montreal QC H3A 0C8

    Current McGill University students are not required to send transcripts by mail. McGill's admitting office obtains these directly. All other applicants must make arrangements with their college and/or university to send official transcripts to McGill.
