Dentistry Colleges and Universities

Dentist and Dental Hygienist Aspiring dentists are highly encouraged to complete pre-dental programs as undergraduates, but pre-dentistry bachelor's degree programs are not offered at colleges and universities. Although students enrolled in pre-dentistry programs can major in any field, they typically major in chemistry, biology, or related scientific fields. Most pre-dental programs are comprised of two years of prerequisite courses required to be admitted into dental school.
