Continuing Dental Education for International Dentists

Our continuing education courses and programs are open to all dentists, regardless of their training background.

Continuing Education (CE) courses are designed for licensed dentists and other dental professionals seeking to enhance their skills and stay updated with the latest developments in their field. If you are seeking information about undergraduate, graduate, or other non-CE programs, please visit the Prospective Student page on the main Faculty of Dentistry website.


For courses involving live patient treatment, participating dentists must obtain an Education License/Certificate for the duration of the clinical sessions (see RCDSO website for details).


All our course fees are listed in Canadian Dollars (CAD).

Letters of Acceptance

We do not issue letters of acceptance for our courses, except for:

  • Advanced Training Programs
  • courses involving live patient treatment

Additional Information for Advanced Training Programs

Upon acceptance into one of our Advanced Training Programs, participants who are coming from outside Canada are responsible for securing their own Canadian study permit, temporary dental license, and/or health insurance plan.

  • Participants who plan to join at the full clinical participation level must obtain an Education License/Certificate from the RCDSO for the duration of the program (see RCDSO website for further information).

    Participants should apply for their temporary licenses as soon as they are accepted into the program as the committee reviewing the applications meets on an infrequent basis and it may take several months for a decision to be reached. Upon acceptance into the program participants will be provided with license application information. Until a temporary license is obtained participation in the clinical aspect of the course will be limited to observer status. The granting of this license is not under any jurisdiction of the University of Toronto, either directly or indirectly.

  • Participants must be enrolled in a health insurance plan for the duration of the program. A health insurance plan may be obtained through the University of Toronto, or a separate provider with a comparable plan. (Further information to be added.)

  • Tuition fee refunds may be provided in the case where reasonable attempts to obtain visa and/or Educational License/Certificate have been made and were unsuccessful. Proof of such attempts must be provided to our department in order for a refund to be considered.

    Please note that the decision to provide refunds is at the sole discretion of Continuing Dental Education (University of Toronto).
