Dean's Message

Welcome to the University of Saskatchewan College of Dentistry’s website.

The practice of dentistry is rapidly changing and the College of Dentistry is responding to these changes to ensure that we meet the needs of our stakeholders now and in the future. By serving as a central link between our community, our profession, our alumni, the dental industry and other health care providers we can improve the health and well-being of society.

We seek to ensure the quality of the education we provide enables our graduates to enter professional life with a solid foundation of evidence-based knowledge, technical skills and the capacity to meet the challenge of technological change. We are striving to educate ethical, business-minded professionals who can apply critical thinking and problem solving to not only dental practice but in a multi-disciplinary health care environment.

The College has begun development of a new integrated planning document that will guide our future planning to better respond to the needs of our stakeholders. Curricula, education, research, community development, continuing education and stakeholder engagement are central to this process.

Over time, we will develop a plan to renew our curricula, our infrastructure and our commitment to our stakeholders.

Please take the time to visit our website and provide us with your comments or feedback.
