Know the Drill
If dental school is in your future, Guilford has the tools to help you get there.
As a Pre-Dentistry student you may major in any discipline, including Health Sciences, as long as you complete the necessary pre-requisite courses for dental school. You will work closely with your advisers to design an individualized course of study. This allows you to complete the required science and social science courses to prepare you for admission to your chosen dentistry program.
Health Science majors also take the Health Science Seminar, a course designed to help you with the graduate school application process, from preparing your personal statement to interview tips and financial planning. During the course, Guilford alumni who are currently in or recently graduated from graduate programs in the health professions often come back to share their experiences with current students. This class should be taken the spring before you plan to apply to dental school.
Take a look at this sample double major for the Pre-Dentistry program. This course of study satisfies the pre-requisites for a graduate program in the health professions while also fulfilling major requirements.
Guilford graduates have or are currently attending dental school at UNC-Chapel Hill, Howard University, Midwestern University, Nova Southeastern University and Temple University.
