Richard’s Answer

Pick something that interests you. You will need to study hard and get good grades to apply to dental school. Beyond that the major is not important as long as you complete the dental school prerequisites. Required courses generally include:

8 hours Biology with lab
8 hours Physics
8 hours English
8 hours General Chemistry with lab
8 hours Organic Chemistry with lab

Major in whatever field interests you and will allow you to maintain an excellent GPA. I majored in Spanish literature and had no trouble with my med school applications. You do need to complete the pre-dental requirements, preferably with A’s.
