School Overview

School Info

The McGill Dental School was established in June 1904 as a department in the Faculty of Medicine and continued as such until 1920 when it became known as the Faculty of Dentistry. The Faculty of Dentistry has always been closely associated with the Montreal General Hospital, where the clinical teaching in the Faculty is mainly carried out along with rotations to other teaching hospitals. The preclinical teaching laboratory is housed in the Strathcona Anatomy and Dentistry Building on campus.


During the first 18 months of the program, basic and applied sciences are taught in conjunction with the Faculty of Medicine. Students then complete 7 months of intense pre-clinical training followed by 2 years of clinical training in the McCall Undergraduate Teaching Clinic at the Montreal General Hospital. Students rotate through various hospital departments including Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Paediatric Dentistry (at the Montreal Childrens Hospital) and the McGill Pain Centre.


McGill is one of the few dental schools in North America with teaching facilities in a hospital. You`ll spend your first two years on the McGill campus, then transfer to the state-of-the-art McCall Undergraduate Dental Clinic at the Montreal General Hospital of the McGill University Health Centre for the last two years of the program. In your clinical years, you will also rotate through other hospital departments.

About the LizzyM Score

LizzyM, SDN Moderator and medical school admissions committee member, is the inventor of the LizzyM Score. The score allows you to see if you are a competitive applicant at a given school. If your LizzyM Score is far below or above the average, you may not be a good fit. If your score is far below, your application may be screened out due to numerical cutoffs. If it is far above, the school may assume they are your “safety” school and that you won’t attend if they offer an acceptance. This score should be used only as a guide to help you select schools and is not a guarantee of acceptance at any school. If you use this as your sole criteria to select medical schools to apply to, you don’t deserve to get in anyway.
