Course info


The pre-dentistry interest track comprises a core of courses required for admission to dental schools. Your choice of the pre-dentistry track at UNCG indicates your interest in preparing for a career in dentistry. Because the required courses can be incorporated into almost any major at UNCG, students should consider a major they find interesting and feel they will do well in academically.


  • Experienced advisers can help plan your academic program and answer questions about the various aspects of applying to dental school.
  • Enroll in a Canvas pre-professional group with resources and information about upcoming events, opportunities, and deadlines.
  • Consider membership in departmental academic honor societies, such as Beta (biology) or the Pre-Dental Students Club.
  • Coursework is helpful in preparing for the Dental Admission Test (DAT), which students typically take after the junior or senior year.

Students interested in the pre-dentistry interest track will be assigned a pre-dental adviser (a member of the UNCG Health Careers Advisory Committee) during the freshman year. For a competitive application, students should demonstrate experience shadowing dentists, volunteering or working in a dental or service setting, and extracurricular activities that show a history of service. Dental schools also require students to have hobbies or jobs which require hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills, as those are essential in the field of dentistry.
