Dentistry programs teach students the fundamentals of dentistry with an emphasis on preparing them for dentistry graduate school and eventually becoming doctors of dentistry. Students are involved in research, educational programs, and community care programs. Programs focus on familiarizing students with general dentistry and with the ethics associated with oral health care. Graduates may go on to enter the fields of biomedical science, community health, diagnostic science, endodontics, oral biology, oral surgery, orthodontics, pediatric dentistry, periodontics, or restorative dentistry.
Programs prepare students to administer oral health information to the community through professional practice. Many students who study pre-dentistry have the opportunity to choose from a wide variety of majors in addition to their prerequisite courses. Many graduate programs do not require applicants to have majored in science, giving students the freedom to pursue other academic interests as well, so long as they include study in biology, chemistry, organic chemistry, and physics.
