Students interested in Pre-Medicine, Pre-Dentistry, Pre-Physician Assistant or Pre-Anesthesia Assistant typically major in Biology or Chemistry but can be ANY MAJOR provided they take the correct pre-requisites. Pre-dentistry is not an academic major, but a collection of courses designed to help you meet the requirements for admission to dental school. Students are advised on the best course of study by a college advisor (as a freshmen or sophomore) or faculty member in their major department. We encourage all students interested in any of these paths to contact an advisor early in their academic careers to ensure they choose the most appropriate curriculum.
The pre-dentistry program prepares students to take the DAT exam and apply for admission to dental school. After graduating from Armstrong, students apply to dental school to complete their training to become a dentist. A dentist has a variety of practice opportunities including working in hospitals and private practice.
