I read on here the other day that a dental school wont pull you out of a masters program to grant you admisssion to their school. Does anyone know if this is true? I plan on contacting several dental schools that I applied to just to see if they can shed light on to this situation but figured someone on here might be able to answer me quicker than an admissions officer.

From what I have been told this is true.

That seems true. Dental committees want to see the highest stats of their accepted applicants. That's how they get state grants (by stats). They want to see a published thesis (unless your undergrad stats were great). I'm doing a masters right now. I'm assuming that you would already be in a masters program by the time you would be applying for dental school. In that case, if your research works out, it would only be an extra year.
