How to become a dental surgeon in Canada

To become an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, one starts by earning a bachelor's degree in a relevant field such as pre-med, focusing on essential sciences, followed by passing the Dental Admissions Test (DAT) to qualify for dental school. Completing dental school, which includes earning a DDS or DDM degree and engaging in internships, sets the foundation for specialized training; further advancement requires a rigorous surgical residency program to obtain a medical degree essential for this specialization. Finally, achieving state licensure, which may involve certification through the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (ABOMS), allows one to practice as an oral and maxillofacial surgeon.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are all dentists dental surgeons?

In Canada, the terms "dentist" and "dental surgeon" are often used interchangeably. All dentists are technically qualified as dental surgeons, as they undergo extensive education and training to diagnose, treat, and perform dental procedures, including surgical interventions related to the mouth, teeth, and jaw. However, the term "dental surgeon" may sometimes specifically refer to dentists who specialize in surgical procedures, such as oral and maxillofacial surgeons, who receive additional training to perform complex surgical interventions beyond general dentistry.
