What is Pre-Dentistry?
Pre-dentistry is not a major. Rather, it is a prescribed program of study in math and science that is required for admission to dental school. Students should work closely with their academic advisors in their major and the pre-dental advisors to assure that GUR, major and Pre-Dental requirements are incorporated into their overall plan of study.
Dentistry is a challenging, dynamic and rewarding profession. Admission to professional schools of dentistry is competitive, so a Pre-Dental program should be planned with care and every effort made to maintain high scholarship. Early in their undergraduate program, Pre-Dental students should review schools they may be interested in to determine specific application requirements.
