Whether you're interested in general dentistry or in a dental specialty, Heidelberg's pre-dental programs provides a strong foundation for a healthcare career. We're focused on providing you with a wide range of experiences and research opportunities so you'll be prepared not only for graduate school, but also for a successful career in dentistry.
To be admitted to a dental school, you must pass the Dental Admission Test (DAT). Your Heidelberg education will prepare you for this test, which covers the areas of biology, organic chemistry, general chemistry, reading comprehension, quantitative reasoning, and physics. There are three professional degree options for dentists - Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS), Doctor of Dental Medicine (DDM) and Doctor of Medical Dentistry (DMD).
