    How does it work? I am considering becoming a dentist but I am not sure yet. I plan on majoring in Econ/Psych/Bio. To have the pre-dental req for dental school, I would need to take certain classes in conjunction with my major, right? Just a little confused on how it works..

    Thanks! Since I'm not in college yet ( just a highschooler pondering future careers ) I can't guage how much that is. Will it feel like I'm doing a double major..?

    No. I know my school required you to take Bio I, Chem I, Phys I & II, and English related classes. The extra would be another bio, another chem, and ochem I & II. Those would be considered unrestricted electives if not required for your major. Typically, you'd have plenty of those to cover the extra classes you need for dental school.

    Also, I'd look through the forums and internet-there's a lot of info out there regarding what you're asking so people don't have to repeat themselves...
