  1. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.saskdocs.ca/web_files/trends&ved=2ahUKEwjnv_KPqPniAhWGmuAKHVBTCTUQFjAAegQIBBAB&usg=AOvVaw120s9p6Wdl5Vj-2JoLuasP Page 68 has some comparisons. Keep in mind, that's payments received, most docs will still have some overhead.
  2. I've been in the city for around 10 years now. Saskatoon can get pretty cold in the winter but the summers are awesome with plenty to do if you choose to stick around. I don't know where you are from in Ontario but pretty much everywhere in the city is reachable by car in 20 minutes depending on traffic. Transit is okay if you plan on taking it to and from school but I wouldn't rely on it for anything else so you'll definitely want a car. Saskatoon is the youngest city in Canada and has some amazing restaurants and pretty decent nightlife for a city it's size. There are a few people that live at the grad house but lots of people will share a house/condo with roommates off campus. PM if you want any other info on the city!
  3. At U of S you start seeing Operative, Perio, and Diagnosis patients in March of 2nd year. You are responsible for booking your patients. Starting in 3rd year you are in the clinic every day, usually seeing 2 patients a day. You are given a daily grade on every patient that you see. You are also given a certain requirement for each class (a number of surfaces that need to be completed for operative etc.) in addition to competencies that are weighted much heavier. Students are put into groups and assigned a patient list and it is up to them to find their patients. If you're looking for clinical experience, U of S definitely punches above its weight for a smaller school. Because there aren't many specialty programs you get experience with more complicated cases that would normally get poached by grad students at a larger school. Between 3rd and 4th year the college also grants you a license to practice under supervision at a dental office in Saskatchewan. U of S and U of A both have an excellent reputation across the country for graduating some of the most clinical ready dentists. Lots of dentists are willing to hire preferentially from these schools as opposed to some of the bigger schools. I may be slightly biased though.
  4. Pretty sure you'll have a bunch of reps visit you at the start of first year which will allow you to try a bunch of different styles and mags. At least that's how it was at my school. I went with Surgitel 2.5 flip downs.
  5. Unless things have changed you can email and they will give you a rough idea of where you are on the list (top, middle, bottom). OOP usually moves quite a bit.
  6. I don't know if you would consider it a graduate degree in the traditional sense but I'm thinking it's probably an MBA.
  7. Congrats! Hopefully the IP list will start moving once Medicine releases their offers.
