Pre-Dental preparation students seeking a career in dentistry should pursue a bachelor’s degree which emphasizes coursework in the natural sciences, social sciences and humanities. Students then go on to a graduate program in dental medicine. At Lourdes we suggest either a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology or a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology or Interdisciplinary Studies that allows for electives in the sciences. These degrees will give students a solid preparation for application to dental school. It is most important that you choose a degree program in a subject you are passionate about and that your cumulative grade point average (GPA) reflects a high level of academic success.
