The initial step for dentistry school is to first earn a bachelor’s degree. Most pre-dentistry students earn a biology, chemistry, exercise science or mathematics degree.
As a student at BHSU, you have the opportunity for mentoring and advisement from our faculty. Our graduates have noted that their research experience and other extracurricular activities give them a competitive edge to apply and succeed at graduate and professional school. BHSU faculty members have close connections with the medical community which creates opportunities for students to shadow working dental professionals (many who are BHSU graduates).
Courses available as part of your bachelor’s degree that will prepare you for your career goals.
