Dentists examine and treat patients for oral diseases and abnormalities of the teeth. They must graduate from an accredited professional school and must be licensed by the state in which they wish to practice. GHC offers the first two years of required courses for admission to the Doctor of Dental Surgery program at the University of Washington. Most students will complete a bachelor degree in any area of study at a four-year college or university prior to admission. Other dental schools may have different admission requirements.
Admission to the accredited professional program is highly competitive and requires course work in biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, and the humanities and social sciences.
You can complete the required courses and earn an Associate of Science degree at GHC. Students should make contact with the professional program during their time at GHC, because admission requirements vary and often change. An academic advisor will help each student select GHC courses that will meet GHC degree requirements and the admission requirements of the professional program.
