Student in a dentistry internship


The pre-dentistry program at Centre offers all of the classes that you need to get into dental school. Centre’s acceptance rate into dental school exceeds 90 percent.


A dental degree is the stepping stone to a career in dentistry, oral-facial surgery, orthodontics, periodontics, and other oral health fields. Many of our pre-dental students do internships with local dentists, and participate in the free Saturday clinics offered by the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry.


Students interested in pursuing a degree in dentistry after Centre should expect to take courses in biology, chemistry, mathematics, and other disciplines.
