Pre-Dental Prep 

Dentistry is one of the few professions that combine science, technology, and even art while helping people maintain their oral health.Thinking about this career option for yourself? Apply for the Los Angeles Dental Society’s Pre-Dental Prep program – a two-month active introduction to the world of dentistry!

You will learn what dentists actually do, the options available to you within the various dental specialties, and how to prepare for a career in dentistry. In addition to educational lectures taught by currently practicing dentists, you will tour two of the top dental schools in the U.S., and have an opportunity to shadow several dentists in-office to observe how different practices operate. 

For those students who wish to pursue dentistry as a profession after completion of Pre-Dental Prep, LADS may further assist by:
1) going over the dental school application process with each pre-dental candidate
2) advising how to prepare for the DAT
3) offering mock dental school interview opportunities, and
4) providing a letter of recommendation to submit with the real school application(s)
