Students hoping to gain admission to the Doctor of Dental Medicine program at UBC must have completed at least three full years of post-secondary courses, all of which may be taken at TRU. In addition, they must achieve a minimum overall grade point average of 70% (2.8) for all college/university work (including failed courses).
Because admission to dentistry is extremely competitive, it is recommended that students choose courses that will lead to a bachelor's degree in science as an alternative career goal.
Pre-Dental students are advised to consult the UBC Faculty of Dentistry website. Further information on pre-dental study, including advice on the appropriate choice of electives and transfer to universities other than UBC, may be obtained from the Chairperson.
