I just recently got accepted into dental school, but have gotten paranoid about the criminal background policy. On the school website it says that accepted students must release their criminal background report and in some rare cases drug screens. I recently had a surgery to remove my wisdom teeth and have been prescribed some fairly strong drugs, like valium and was worried that this might show up on a drug test. I also drink kava-kava tea pretty regularly, and have heard in in some circumstances that it can cause some false positives on screens. I've never really heard of a school drug testing matriculating students, but if they do would it be when class starts or can they test you earlier before class starts on the 11th of august. Sorry, i'm just really paranoid about it and do not want to get in trouble for something this minuscule. If anybody can shed some light about how they were matriculated for UTSD houston dental school, I would highly appreciate it.
