The majority of students presently entering dental schools have completed four years of college and the bachelor’s degree. Prospective dental students are advised to follow a major program in the physical or biological sciences. Other college majors are possible, provided the student completes certain courses in the sciences necessary for admission to, and successful progress in, the dental college.
The academic and other requirements for dental school admission are available on the American Dental Association and American Dental Education Association websites. Information and advice concerning dental school admission requirements may be discussed with the chair of the Biology Department.
