The College of Dentistry

The College of Dentistry is dedicated to educating students to become caring oral health professionals in a progressive learning environment, conducting oral health/related research, and serving the oral health professions and society as a source of knowledge and expertise.

Targeting Excellence: A Bright Future in Oral Health

The College 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 our continued evolution, we will build on our high quality programs in our continuous pursuit of excellence.

Located at the University of Manitoba Bannatyne Campus within the Rady Faculty of Health Sciences, the College of Dentistry includes the School of Dental Hygiene and our neighbours are the Max Rady College of Medicine, College of Rehabilitation Sciences and College of Pharmacy. 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 College’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.
