Are you interested in Dental School?
In recent years, Berry students have enjoyed nearly 100 percent
acceptance rate into dental schools. As requirements vary for each
school, undergraduates should know the requirements for the school they
plan to attend. Dental schools generally require a strong foundation in
biology, general and organic chemistry, and math. The Berry College
liberal arts education provides firsthand experience through the student
work program which enables students to work as teaching assistants and
research assistants. Students also have opportunities to conduct
their own research or intern as technician assistants with area
What about the faculty and facilities?
The biology and chemistry departments are housed in an
ultramodern science building designed to promote hands-on learning and
faculty-student collaboration in research and study. It houses a
variety of offices, classrooms, laboratories, reading rooms and special
facilities, such as tissue culture labs, greenhouses, a microscopy
suite and an aquatics laboratory. The faculty at Berry includes
graduates from the University of Vermont, Rutgers University, the
University of Cincinnati, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the
University of Virginia and many more.
Are there any related clubs or organizations?
While there are no clubs specifically for students interested in
dentistry, many choose to join the Allied Health Sciences Club, the
Biology Club, and the Chemistry Club.
