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
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. Your gift to the Digital Dentistry fund will help us acquire new software and hardware, so that each of our units can be equipped with digital radiographs, intraoral scanners, and onsite 3D printing and manufacturing. With these resources, our students can graduate with proficiency in all aspects of digital workflows.
Dentistry Outreach Clinics Support Fund
Our outreach programs work to improve access to oral health care for more than 20,000 patients across Atlantic Canada, including elementary school children and equity-deserving populations. Our community 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 the 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.
