Overview

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:



  1. 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

  2. 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.

3. Flexible-Time Option

The Faculty of Dentistry offers a flexible-time PhD program for selected students whose career goal is a full-time academic position in a clinical discipline. Students concurrently establish their teaching and academic credentials. The major goal upon program completion is to enable students to compete for university tenure-stream professorial positions in their clinical science discipline.

The program is dedicated to research experience and therefore does not involve clinical training other than clinical research methodology. It entails completion of the research and coursework requirements for the PhD degree half time, while teaching in a clinical discipline half time.

Minimum Admission Requirements


  • Applicants are admitted under the General Regulations of the School of Graduate Studies. Applicants must also satisfy the Graduate Department of Dentistry's additional admission requirements stated below.

  • A professional degree from a recognized university equivalent to the University of Toronto DDS and a graduate degree equivalent to the University of Toronto MSc. Preference is given to:

    • applicants who have completed specialty education equivalent to the standard required for licensure as a specialist by the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario; and

    • applicants who hold a university appointment in Canada at an academic standard equivalent to the University of Toronto Lecturer.

Program Requirements

  • Appropriate research supervision and advisory committee membership, customized plan of study, and timetable for the completion of the degree requirements, as approved by the Associate Dean of Graduate and Postgraduate Studies, will be in place at program commencement. The Associate Dean monitors progress by review of completed advisory committee reports based on annual meetings of the student with the supervisory committee.

  • Although the minimum residency requirement for the PhD is one year, the anticipated completion date for the flexible-time PhD program will be within five to six years from the registration date.

  • Students are required to conduct research leading to completion and defence of a thesis and complete minimum coursework requirements, which include DEN 1100Y0 Doctoral Seminars in Oral Health Sciences, plus an additional 2.5 full-course equivalents (FCEs) that includes the course DEN 1015H Introduction to Biostatistics.

  • Students must pass a qualifying oral examination 12 to 24 months after commencement to demonstrate an adequate capacity for oral health sciences research at the doctoral level.

  • Participate in all graduate research activities of the advisor's research group.

  • Present at meetings and publish original research findings in timely fashion.

  • Participate as members of departmental and student committees as applicable.

Program Length

8 years flexible-time depending on specialty
