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.
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.
