Hi there !
4 years for your bachelors. Then dental school is 4 years plus 1 year of externship. If you are going into any specialties, it ranges from 3-5 years additionally. Oral surgeon is 5 ,endodontist is approx. 4 and pediatric is 3.
These are based on NY specialties at Stony Brook University where I went.
