There are only 6 schools, of which one is 100% french so it leaves you with 5 school to apply to. (assuming you don't speak french fluently)
Most Canadian go to residency in the States, I never heard of an American coming here so I guess it's not that easy..
Perio doesn't participate in the match here though, this is nice.

Canadian programs are generally harder to get into (so few spots, high GPA cut off) and more academically oriented than clinical. All programs in Canada have a mandatory masters component. If you can stay in the US and pay in state tuition vs. international Canadian tuition, no point to coming North unless you have a weird fetish for the Maple Leafs who can't win the cup ;)

Great explaination. I've heard they are very strict when it comes to a GPA and I know for a fact that the two residents admitted to Dalhousie a few years ago had extensive perio experience prior to being accepted so fresh graduates don't stand a chance. More of a Habs fan myself though

Yes, no one (or almost no one) in canada get into a specialty straight from dental school. Most residencies ask for a GPR or at least a year of PP.
I will apply to the US next year if i don’t get in this year but i would rather stay home hence why my weird « canadian programs only » choice :)

Thanks for the info! I know some on my list have tuition, but for a good program I think its worth it. BTW, Harvard is about $65k/yr, UCSF is about $50k/yr if you're out of state and NYU is about $35k/yr. I think it's more common to have to pay something, rather than go for free/get a stipend.

Best of luck friend!

Hi guys,
I'm considering applying to Nova. I really don't know anything about the program (its strength, etc.). Any inputs are greatly appreciated.
Nova is really great clinically because you each have your own bay so you can do surgery whenever you want. But its an old building, not a ton of sedation, and lit review is intense but good.

Hi aporzio.me
Thanks for the info. How do you know about the Nova program?
I wonder if programs would not go heavy on applicants who are not familiar with their programs since most would not have the opportunity to intern/extern because of Covid situation?

A classmate of mine just graduated from Nova. I'm not sure about interning/externing.
