I thought people don't consider dentistry as a career until they're deep into college years ... or even beyond.
I agree that you should worry about getting into college first. But if you can, take AP chem/bio/physics to either place out or at least get a feel for college science. You'll want to ace your college science courses to get into dental school and these should help you. Even taking a community college science course summer may be good to get a flavor for it, but not all dental schools will take your CC credits to complete prereq's.msx3suzz said:its my 1st time but my ? is...
what classes should i take in high school if i want to be a dentist?
and what clubs/outside activities should i do?
Yeah, Thats a great program it you have the brains and grades to get accepted. when i visited UOP there was a student graduating at 22. 2 years of undergrad in stockton then 3 years in SF.philicity said:If you're still in high school, you can consider applying to Pacific's dental program which basically grants you admission to their dental school if you keep up your grades at their undergrad college and score a bit above average (>=18) on the DAT's. The good thing is that you only have to do two or three years of undergrad depending on your high school scores. the bad thing is.....you have to go to their undergrad and live in Stockton, CA.
