The successful pre-dental student must have a strong foundation in biology, chemistry, physics and mathematics. Applicants should successfully complete as many science courses as possible to prepare for the Dental Admission Test (DAT) and dental school curriculum.
|Inorganic Chemistry (CHM 190 and CHM 310)||8 hours|
|Organic Chemistry (CHM 203-204)||8 hours|
|Quantitative Analysis (CHM 251)||4 hours|
|Physics (PHY 251-252)||8 hours|
|Biology (BIO 190 or 191)||8 hours|
|English (Composition and Literature)||6 hours|
|Mathematics (Algebra & Calculus)||6 hours|
|Science Electives (Microbiology, Biochemistry, Anatomy, Genetics, Histology, Physiology, etc.)||8 hours|
Courses in business, finance or accounting are also strongly recommended. Volunteer or internship experience in a variety of clinical settings is highly recommended. Early application to the dental school is important. The American Dental Education Association (ADEA) has information on the application process and on the Dental Admission Test (DAT) for all member Dental Schools in this country.
