Pre-Health Advising


Preparing yourself to apply to the dental schools of your choice involves completing dental school prerequisite courses, getting good grades in all of your courses, gaining experience in the field of dentistry, and taking the DAT test. Here you will find details about what common dental school prerequisite courses are and what UW Bothell and UW Seattle courses fulfill those requirements, information about electives, and more information about the DAT and gaining dentistry experience.

What should I major in?

As a pre-dental student, you can major in anything. There is not a specific major that all pre-dental students must have. Dental schools do care that you do well in your major and in your pre-dental coursework. Think about what interests you and what might be a good alternative option to dental school should your plans change. Visit the Career Center at UW Bothell if you need help with major selection.
