How to Become a Dentist in Canada

The journey to becoming a dentist in Canada starts with obtaining a Bachelor's degree, ideally in a science-related field, to meet the prerequisite courses for dental school. Following this, aspiring dentists must take and score competitively on the Dental Aptitude Test (DAT), which is essential for admission into most Canadian dental schools. The next step involves completing a program for a Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) or Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) at an accredited school. After graduation, one must pass the National Dental Examining Board of Canada (NDEB) exams, both written and clinical, to achieve licensure. Lastly, additional provincial requirements, such as jurisprudence exams or securing malpractice insurance, may need to be met, depending on the location.
