Dental School


Predental advisement is for students that are interested in becoming dentists (DDS or DMD). Dentists are devoted to maintaining oral health. We help students determine if dentistry is right for them. Students will learn about dental schools and the preparation that is required.

We assist students in planning necessary classes and preparing for the Dental Admissions Test (DAT). Additionally, we counsel students about specifics such as shadowing a dentist, assisting in scientific research, performing community service, obtaining letters of recommendation, and being involved in any other extracurricular activities that will improve students’ chances of gaining admission to dental school.

We are available to all students regardless of major. We strongly advise students to come in and meet with our advisors to help guide you through your undergraduate experience. Please click below to see the available handouts.
