Post Graduate Education in Paediatric Dentistry

M.Sc Graduate Specialty Program in Paediatric Dentistry

The three-year, Master of Science in Paediatric Dentistry is based at the Faculty of Dentistry, University of Toronto, under the direction of Dr. Iris Daniel, Director, Graduate Paediatric Dentistry. The program accepts four applicants each year. A significant component of training comes from rotations at SickKids. Residents rotate through SickKids all three years of their program with the greatest amount of clinical time spent in their second year.  

All residents are supervised at a maximum three students to one staff in the clinics and on a one-to-one basis in the operating room. The didactic program for first year residents in paediatric dentistry includes Hospital Management of the Paediatric Patient, Seminars in Dental Trauma, Division of Emergency Medicine Orientation program and the Privacy Training and Preventing Workplace Violence are part of the SickKids online computer based tutorials.  

First year residents also “buddy” with clinically experienced second year residents to take call in the Spring term to provide experience with management of dental emergencies and to prepare them to provide after-hours call on their own. Residents from all three years attend the Current Literature Review course.
