Admission into dental school requires a minimum of 90 college hours of credit from college. Dental students need at least a bachelor's degree before entering dental school.

Dentists will continue to see an increase in public demand due to the importance of oral health in the U.S Dentists treat problems with a patient’s teeth, gums, and other parts of the mouth.
