The Faculty of Dentistry of the University of Toronto offers a three year program leading to a Master in Science degree. The graduate is eligible to challenge both the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology examination and the National Dental Specialty Examination, leading to Fellowship in the Royal College of Dentists of Canada.

The program, established in 1965, stresses the importance of the prescription of imaging modalities and image interpretation to diagnose abnormalities of the maxillofacial region. Patients are seen by residents in the Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology clinic or in one of the associated teaching hospitals, where they obtain experience prescribing the appropriate imaging procedures (approximately 325 patients per year). The program provides extensive experience in intraoral and extraoral radiography, sialography, medical and cone beam computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and nuclear medicine. Intensive courses in oral and maxillofacial pathology and disease mechanisms as applied to radiology are also included. This latter course provides an understanding of the mechanisms by which pathologic conditions alter the appearances of tissue structures, and this in turn, provides the basis for radiologic interpretation. Radiology rounds conducted with medical radiology residents further highlight the use of advanced imaging to diagnose abnormalities of the head and neck.

Radiation biology, the physics of radiology, statistics and epidemiology, disorders of the temporomandibular joints and experience in undergraduate teaching are included.

Two application deadlines of September 1 (for enrollment the following year) and March 1 (for enrollment the same year) are offered.
