What if you need more than four Letters of recommendation?

Looking at the requirements for different schools they obviously all have different requirements. Does this mean there are simply some schools I cannot apply to?

For example I've seen 1 science, 1 non-science, and 1 general dentist. Another requires two biology 1 general dentist and another 1 chemistry, 1 biology 1 general dentist. Just between these three is more than 4 letters. Either Im missing something, or I guess Im just surprised that you are restricted from certain combinations of applications.

The dental schools don't have to coordinate their letter requirements, so it's always up to the applicant to be sure. You'll need to check with schools on how strict they really are and whether you can send a followup letter (probably after you are invited to interview).
