    Admission to the Faculty of Dentistry is based on academic performance and personal qualities as evidenced by aptitude tests (applicants must have completed the Canadian Dental Association Dental Aptitude Test (DAT) or the American Dental Association DAT within the previous five years) problem based learning (PBL) assessment, and personal interviews. Since facilities for pre-clinical and clinical instruction are limited, enrolment is restricted. Applicants must supply evidence of Canadian citizenship or permanent residency of Canada. A limited number of international applicants may be admitted to the D.M.D. program.

    Completion of three academic years in a Faculty of Arts or Science including pre-dental requirements at UBC or the equivalent, with a minimum scholastic average of 70%, (based on the system of grading used at UBC), is required.

    Prerequisite courses that need to be taken before entry into Dentistry are:
