 Permanent link   All Posts

A new three-year Master of Science degree program in Prosthodontics will be launched in August 2018 by the University of Manitoba College of Dentistry (U of M COD) in the Rady Faculty of Health Sciences. The U of M COD, located in Winnipeg, is one of only three universities in Canada to offer a graduate prosthodontics degree.

The program will provide a strong foundation in classical prosthodontics, along with intensive training in state-of-the-art aesthetic dentistry, digital workflows, CAD/CAM technologies, dental microscopy, and placement and restoration of dental implants. The program’s strengths include a low instructor/resident ratio, well-balanced clinical and didactic programs with a critical approach to literature, and opportunities for clinical research.

The 36-month program, under the directorship of Igor Pesun, D.M.D., M.S., will lead to a Certificate in Prosthodontics combined with an M.S. in Prosthodontics. Successful completion of the program will satisfy the formal training requirement for eligibility for the Royal College of Dentists of Canada and Canada Fellowship. Fellowship is required for licensure as a specialist in Canada. Graduates will also be eligible for the American Board of Prosthodontics certification examination. 

The program has applied for accreditation by the Commission on Dental Accreditation of Canada.

The deadline for admission in August 2018 is October 1, 2017. To learn more and apply for the position, visit the U of M COD website
