Pre-Dentistry

Interested in becoming a dentist? Our pre-dentistry pages contain useful information regarding preparing for dental school.

Things to keep in mind regarding pre-dentistry at CWU:

  • Pre-dentistry is not a major. Pre-dentistry is a set of prerequisite courses that prepare you for success on the DAT and entry into dental school.
  • Dental schools are looking for well-rounded applicants. While many students choose a field in the natural sciences for a major,  many applicants from humanities or social sciences are accepted into dental school. Choose a major that is the best fit for you.
  • Students should seek advising early. While we can advise you on strong coursework preparation that will generally support your admission, we cannot be familiar with the specific requirements of all the individual schools. Please check requirements for individual schools as you prepare your applications.
