Pre-Dental Program

If you’re preparing to pursue a career in dentistry, our pre-dental program offers traditionally successful routes through our biology or chemistry majors. Advisors are available in both pre-dental programs to help you plan the course of study that best fits your needs. Plus, they understand the entrance procedures and requirements of various post-baccalaureate programs.

The majority of the professional schools want a pre-dental major who has completed courses in physics, chemistry, biology, mathematics and have a background in English, humanities, and social sciences. The ability to solve scientific problems and a broad undergraduate education are considered essential for the pre-dental program student. However, you may major in just about any subject or pursue any academic interest as long as the required courses are completed.

In preparation for admission to dental school, you should build a broad and strong background in natural sciences, social studies and humanities. You should also consult bulletins from the dental schools you’re considering for specific entrance requirements.

At University of the Cumberlands, we’re here to help. We are the pre-dental college you’ve been searching for. Our pre-dental courses are designed to help you develop the solid educational background you need to succeed at the next level. And our pre-dental program advisors are well-versed on the requirements and coursework professional dental schools look for when admitting new students.
