University of the Cumberlands dental student cleaning teeth.


If you’re preparing to pursue a career in dentistry, our pre-dentistry emphasis offers traditionally successful routes through our biology or chemistry majors. Advisors are available in both of disciplines 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 pre-dentistry majors who have 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-professional 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.

If you have a passion for improving someone's confidence through the art of dentistry, this might be the the first step in your path to a dental degree.  For more information on the pre-dental degree program from UC, fill out the form on this page.
