Combined and Early Assurance Dental Programs

Not every currently-practicing dentist was 100% convinced back in high school that their career goal was to be a dentist. However, for those tooth-obsessed college applicants out there with strong grades and test scores, there are plenty of reasons to consider a streamlined bachelors/DDS or DDM degree. Students admitted into the programs on this list have the opportunity to concurrently gain acceptance to an undergraduate institution as well as an affiliated dental school. This can lead to a completion of a bachelor’s degree and a degree in dental medicine in 6-7 years while allowing students to bypass certain admission requirements to dental school. Listed below are colleges that offer a combined dental program with the affiliated dental schools listed in the second column. Click the links in the first column for more information about each offering.
