You will interact with full- and part-time staff who will expend considerable time and energy to ensure that you have a positive educational experience during your residency year. We believe that we have the premier hospital dental residency program in Canada and one of the top international programs.
The Department of Dentistry is an integral member of Mount Sinai Hospital’s health care facility. We are members of a large and successful interactive community within which there is a significant degree of interdependence. Four of our key programs, Oral Facial Pain (including the surgical management of the TMJ); Dentistry for Persons with Disabilities and Medically Compromised; the Graduate Program in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and the Clinical Program in Oral Pathology and Oral Medicine are recognized as core programs of the Hospital and are the primary provincial sites for such specialized care.
Our hospital community includes nurses, administrative, custodial, medical and dental personnel, undergraduate dental and graduate specialty students, and you the full-time resident staff. Communication and co-operation is the key to our success as a Department. We are a united team committed to quality patient care in an educational environment.
The patient is the single most important person at the Mount Sinai Hospital and is the focus of our attention. The majority of our patients are medically compromised and this fact alone will offer considerable educational and treatment challenges. Our patients are seen only on a referral basis either from physicians, dentists or other dental specialists. We are a tertiary and quaternary treatment facility in the heart of the University of Toronto’s Health Sciences Complex.
There are mandatory in-hospital educational and patient care rotations including day, evening, weekend emergency coverage, sessions in anesthesia, ENT, dentistry for persons with disabilities, facial and TMJ pain, general dentistry, oral and maxillofacial surgery, oral pathology and oral medicine, periodontics, prosthodontics including implants for special needs patients, and endodontics. There are also weekly seminars requiring your active participation. Out of hospital rotations include patient care at the Toronto Rehab the largest rehab facility in Canada and Weeneebayco Hospital in Moose Factory Ontario.
The academic year at Mount Sinai Hospital offers an exciting, dynamic educational experience for the motivated resident in hospital dentistry providing you are willing to commit all your time and energy to this program. Upon completion of our program you will be well prepared to enter a general practice, institutional practice or specialty programs in dentistry.
