Applicants who are considered to have potential based on their application documents may be selected for the pre-entry examination, held in mid August. Prior to the examination, a $2000 (CDN) non-refundable pre-entry examination fee is required from each applicant. On completion of the pre-entry examination, applicants may qualify to proceed to the pre-clinical assessment course (May to July inclusive).
The pre-clinical assessment course (DDS 829) is held May to July inclusive. Prior to the pre-clinical assessment course, a non-refundable deposit of approximately $5,500 (CDN) is required. This deposit will be applied to fees owed.
The estimated tuition amount for DDS 829 is $5,800.00.
There is an approximate fee of $4,730 for Equipment and Instrumentation Rental.
There is an approximate fee of $2,000 for VitalSource.
Applicants should be aware that a clear Police Information Check (PIC) is required as a condition of admission and that any criminal charges pending must be declared. Under the Protection for Persons in Care Act, all students going to any clinical placement or rotation in Alberta are required to complete a Police Information Check (also known as a Criminal Record Check, Security Clearance Check, or Police Clearance), which must include a Vulnerable Sector Check. The clinical practice site will determine the criteria for acceptance/denial of a placement.
Police Information Checks are due at the beginning of the Pre-Clinical Assessment. Applicants should plan to have their PIC complete prior to May. Failure to submit a clear and complete PIC by the required date will result in the offer of admission to the Pre-Clinical Assessment being revoked.
Pre-clinical assessment applicants are required to have their immunization records reviewed and updated by a health care professional. We recommend this be done at the University Health Centre (UHC) on campus. The vaccination requirements are based on the Alberta Provincial guidelines for HealthCare Students in a Post-Secondary Institution and serology/immunization outside the guidelines is not routinely done or recommended. All immunization records need to be written and legible. Translation should be provided if there is not a legend attached. Students without records will be required to complete their primary series.
Enrolment is limited.
The applicant profile is made up of the AFK score, dental school results, successful completion English Language Proficiency and Spoken English requirement and successful completion of the Pre-Entry Exam and Pre-Clinical Assessment course.
The Admissions Committee reserves the right to use its judgment with respect to individual cases. The decision concerning admission is final. No appeal mechanism exists.
Notification of Acceptance
On notice of acceptance (which occurs in August), applicants must remit a non-refundable deposit of $1000 to the University to confirm their admission. This amount is credited toward payment of tuition upon completion of registration.
