didactic content is enriched by the medical sciences, and the clinical experience supported by local
general and specialist practitioners and a large patient pool from across Southwestern Ontario. At
Schulich Dentistry, we prepare graduates to provide outstanding dental care as well as generate
knowledge through cutting-edge basic and clinical research. We also provide oral health care to the
