About the Program

MSc-Clinical-Perio

The Faculty of Dentistry, through its Division of Periodontics and Dental Hygiene, offers graduate training in Periodontics as a three-year program aimed at producing clinical specialists with an excellent foundation in clinical, behavioural, and biomedical sciences. Successful graduates receive a Diploma in Periodontics and Master of Science Degree in Craniofacial Science.
In this program option, the degree and the diploma are awarded conjointly and both must be completed to graduate. Graduates will be eligible to take the examinations for specialty certification in periodontics through NDEB and the American Board of Periodontics. Specialty certification was hosted by RCDC before, but the National Dental Examining Board of Canada (NDEB) has taken over the administration and management of the NDSE for all dental specialty programs.

The program provides education and training for clinicians, researchers and teachers. Achievement of the Diploma in Periodontics requires successful completion of the clinical and didactic requirements associated with the diploma program in the Faculty of Dentistry, successful completion of the MSc in Craniofacial Science course requirements, and successful defense and submission of the thesis to the Faculty of Graduate Studies.Please note that your supervisor, supervisory committee members and area of research may not necessarily be in the same specialty area of this clinical program.
