The Faculty of Dentistry at the University of British Columbia is dedicated to progressive dental education with the goal of preparing today's students for the changing oral health needs of the community. The Faculty embraces a hybrid-PBL curriculum that emphasizes professionalism, student-centered learning and self-directed study. We encourage our students to apply what they learn in behavioural sciences to the clinical environment. The clinical aspects of our curriculum emphasize mentorship, demonstration of clinical procedures, and incremental achievement of competency in our patient-centered clinics. To help us accomplish these goals, we count on the contributions of general practitioners in our community who are generous enough to serve as part-time faculty members. Specialists are also required to serve as Consultants in their area of expertise.We appreciate your interest in our Dental School and if you would like more information about participating in our various teaching programs, please .
