Did you know

Your smile is a strong point of attraction, 61% of adults admit that they are attracted to somebody’s smile alone.

Students planning on gaining admission to dental school must successfully combine an academic major with the specific prerequisite requirements. Most dental schools are not selective in your degree. Are you interested in dentistry? You should select the best degree for you. Factors to consider:

  • How efficient is the degree?
  • What are your passions?
  • If Dentistry were no longer a thing, what would you do?
  • Where do you feel most confident academically?

If students are having trouble deciding which major is best for them, we can help! Meet with a pre-health advisor through our College of Health Science Student Services and Academic Advising Office.

The Pre-Dentistry Pathway is a non-degree program available at Boise State University. You will not earn a degree in Pre-Dentistry*.

*with the exception of those who attended Boise State before August 2018.
