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.

Pre-dentistry students should consult with faculty advisor Professor Aaron Godlaski and can reach him by email here.
