You need to take your DAT and do well on it before we can say anything. With that said I think your gpa is kinda low and you need to improve that either through post bacs or masters. Apply early. Good luck.

Post bacc is a great idea but it could take u a good 2+ years to bring that science gpa to something like a 3.4+

On the other hand, if u destroy the DAT (23 or higher) then u probably wouldn't need the post-bacc or masters

But honestly the best advice we can give u is to call up the dental schools ur interested in and see what they say
