Pre-Professional Programs - Dentistry


Program description

Pre-dentistry students are advised to select a major in Biology with the Healthcare concentration and work closely with the pre-dentistry advisor to fulfill the pre-requisites necessary to be admitted into a dental school. The specific curriculum will be dependent upon the schools of dentistry to which the students may wish to apply. Requirements for the various schools may be obtained from the advisor. In addition to a strong GPA, students must score well on the Dental Admittance Test (DAT). It is desirable that the pre-dental student receive as broad and liberal a college education as possible while meeting the pre-dental science requirements. For this reason, it is recommended that the student enroll in additional humanities, social science, and behavioral science courses. A course in jewelry making is also encouraged.
