About the Faculty of Dentistry
The Faculty of Dentistry has evolved, from a single undergraduate degree program which graduated its first class of Dentists in 1962, into a multi-faceted professional academy offering a four-year dental degree, a two-year dental hygiene diploma, five graduate programs, a significant research profile, and a variety of community service activities. During the Faculty’s evolution, we will build on our high quality programs in our continuous pursuit of excellence.
Located at the University of Manitoba Bannatyne Campus, the Faculty of Dentistry neighbours include the School of Dental Hygiene, the Faculty of Medicine, the School of Medical Rehabilitation. Next to the Health Sciences Centre in downtown Winnipeg, Manitoba, this campus is the site for most of the University’s programs in health sciences, providing a unique opportunity to interact with fellow students, faculty, and colleagues in other health-related disciplines.
The Faculty’s four-level building houses seminar and lecture rooms, computer laboratories, pre-clinical teaching and research laboratories, state-of-the-art clinics, student lounges and lockers, and offices – all dedicated to an environment conducive to oral health teaching, research and community service.
The Faculty of Dentistry is dedicated to educating students to become caring oral health professionals in a progressive learning environment, conducting oral health and related research and serving the oral health professions and society as a source of knowledge and expertise.
