We do not select or give preference to a particular undergraduate major field; in fact, our Admissions Committee encourages diversity in majors. Courses in the social sciences and the humanities are also important and are reviewed by the Committee.

Although a majority of students have baccalaureate degrees, students with outstanding academic qualifications may be considered for admission after only three years.

As a member of our entering class, you’ll be one of 63 students. The School is committed to diversity within the dental school student body and the dental community.
