The University of Alberta School of Dentistry’s Centennial Celebration Kick Off

Today, I had the pleasure to speak with Dr. Paul Major, Professor and Chair of the University of Alberta School of Dentistry. Dr. Major reviewed the long and rich history of the school and shared his view on the school’s strategic plan, implemented since 2010. Dr. Major also shared information about exciting events that will take place throughout 2017 to celebrate the School of Dentistry’s centennial

  1. 1. First dental college in Canada was founded, in Toronto, in 1875 by the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario. Affiliated with UofT 1888
    2. McGill U Dental School dates from 1905, but its origins can be traced to 1892.
    3. Université de Montréal 1905
    4. Dalhousie University 1908
    5. University of Alberta

    Certainly the oldest dental faculty in western Canada.

    • Hi Robert,

      Thank you for leaving your comment. That’s what we are saying that it is the first school in Western Canada not in all Canada.
