Question about Canon Cameras
There are only preset values available in your camera you cannot select custom values. For information about changing the pixel count please refer to page 60 of the manual below.

The only thing that DPI will change is the resolution of a printed photo, not anything on your computer screen.
To answer your question, NO, there isn't a setting on the camera that will change the DPI of your photos. However, your photo processing app (Photoshop, Lightroom, I believe DPP?) can change that. But changing the DPI won't affect the number of pixels in your photo, nor arrange them in any specific way. It only affects how the printer deals with the information it receives, and/or the way your photo app determines the dimensions of the photo—i.e. the higher the DPI, the smaller the length and width of the photo.
Okay, looking at your post again, it looks like you're talking about a printed photo when you say they look pixellated.
So yeah. If you're adjusting the dimensions of the photo in your processing app by using LxW modifications (i.e. you're changing the dimensions to 8"x10", not 2400px x 3000px), and it's set to 72dpi, you WILL get pixellated photos. 72dpi is designed for screen resolution (though in truth, most monitors are manufactured at a 96dpi pitch). But what I said before still holds true: your camera isn't what sets the resolution; the processing app does.
let me know, if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.

• An image is defined by its pixel dimensions - # pixels tall by # pixels wideWhether you're a blogger dealing with an upload limit or are just trying to print a photo to hang on the wall, understanding DPI/PPI can go a long way. I hope these tips help you feel more in control of your images and how you share them with the world!
• DPI/PPI determines the scale and pixel density at which image will be displayed
• What appears blurry from close up may look fine at a distance, so consider how an image will be seen
• Printers can produce a range of DPIs, while displays have fixed resolution
