Supplemental Application


At the University of British Columbia, competition for a limited number of places is extremely keen in most programs. In the Faculty of Dentistry, academic performance is an important criterion for admission, but we recognize that activities and experiences, including work experience, that demonstrate technical ability, commitment, and personal development are also indicators of the likelihood of success in dental hygiene.
