|Description:||At TWU, the Faculty of Natural and Applied Sciences offers students with a pre-dentistry program, which is a set of required courses needed for entry into dentistry schools across Canada. The program is ideal for students interested in healthcare and treating and preventing diseases of people’s teeth, mouths, and gums. In addition, students must aim to achieve a high grade point average throughout their studies in order to increase their chances for the competitive admission to dentistry schools.
Normally pre-dentistry students are required to complete three academic years towards a baccalaureate degree, which includes courses in the humanities and social sciences, before applying to dentistry schools. Specific requirements for many dental schools may also include courses from biology, chemistry, mathematical, English, and physics disciplines. In addition, students have the option of obtaining a Bachelor of Science degree from TWU while meeting the pre-dentistry program requirements. This option guarantees that students not only have the pre-requisites for dentistry schools, but also receive a liberal arts education.
