NKU students who wish to pursue careers in dentistry often choose undergraduate majors in the natural sciences and mathematics, but they may meet dental school admission requirements with any degree, provided they fulfill the general course requirements. It's a good idea for students to consult the dental school of their choice for specific entrance requirements.
Students interested in dentistry should work closely with a pre-dentistry advisor who will help ensure they complete the specific requirements for their desired professional program and their undergraduate degree.
At, NKU, both the Department of Biological Sciences and the Department of Chemistry have faculty who are dedicated pre-dental advisors.
Additional Pre-Professional Programs Offered:
