When someone applies to Dental schools, do they need to have all the prereq classes done and not be taking them at the time they apply?
(for instance, having taken chem, bio, orgo and all the other classes when you apply to dental school with the exception of physics and be taking physics at the time you apply).
Thanks!

Who takes pre-med classes to go to dental school? Wouldn't they be called pre-dental classes?

(Yes I am kidding & realize it is the same pre-reqs)

Just be sure you finish them before you matriculate and it should be fine. :)

No, you don't have to have all the prereqs to apply. Having at least a good portion of them is necessary so the adcoms can evaluate you. Any prereqs you're missing will show in your acceptance letter as needing completion, and must be done usually before the summer prior to matriculation.
