Pre-Dentistry: Chemistry Track
Chemistry has helped us develop effective pain relief, design improved materials for fillings, and find better ways to repair and replace teeth. Because so much of dental science derives from chemistry, the Chemistry B.A. program at UNI makes for excellent preparation for a career in dentistry. In fact, UNI graduates routinely have among the highest dental school placement rates in the Midwest, and even the nation.
It is important to keep in mind that the pre-dental track is not an academic major; rather, it’s a suggested program of study that prepares students to apply to professional school upon completing their undergraduate degree. Pre-dental students may choose a major in any area, though at UNI, and nationally, the most common major for pre-dental students is chemistry or biology.

Dental School Prep
A degree in Chemistry allows you to complete the prerequisites for dental school, while gaining hands-on lab experiences to set you apart from the crowd.
UNI faculty relationships with colleagues at other medical institutions are beneficial to students.
