How We Can Help
Pre-Dental students major in any discipline without adversely affecting admission to dental school. There are some basic premedical school requirements for admission to most U.S. dental schools.
Some schools may have additional course requirements such as biochemistry or advanced level biology courses. Always refer to individual dental school web sites for their specific requirements. The information is also available in the ADEA Official Guide to Dental Schools.
Advanced Placement courses and/or Acceleration Credits generally do not satisfy requirements for admission to dental school, but are used to elect advanced courses in those subject areas.
Ideally, since the dental schools will judge you on the basis of the work you have completed when you apply for admission, the majority of prerequisite courses should be completed by the time of application.
