Faculty of Dentistry
In the Faculty of Dentistry, we are committed to educating the next generation of dentists and dental hygienists who will provide oral care in their communities. By gaining a combination of clinical practice, research and outreach programs, our students graduate as compassionate oral health-care providers who are committed to improving the health of their patients.
Your gift helps strengthen the Faculty of Dentistry.
Top Funding Priorities
Dentistry Outreach Clinics Support Fund
Our dentistry outreach clinics work to improve access to oral health care for more than 26,000 patients across Atlantic Canada, including elementary school children and equity-deserving populations. Our dentistry outreach clinics provide oral health-care students with the opportunity to gain valuable clinical experience while providing care to patients from many different backgrounds.
Please help our students to develop their skills, gain experience and provide care to patients who need it most.
GAP clinic provides a unique learning experience for all
Caring for patients in the Monday night Government Assisted Populations (GAP) dental clinic means a 12-hour day for the dental hygiene and dentistry students who work and volunteer there, but it provides a learning experience like no other.

Support the Digital Dentistry Campaign
Digital solutions and technology help reduce patient treatment time, dental production time, and material costs, while improving health records and surgical accuracy. With new state-of-the-art clinic facilities, the Faculty of Dentistry will:
- Enhance teaching and learning. Incorporating more digital technology into the curriculum, testing and evaluation will better prepare students for future practice. It will also create new research opportunities for students and faculty.
- Improve patient care. Additional digital equipment will improve clinical practice and the patient experience for impressions, restorations and milled crowns.
