Being a dentist, is indeed one of those professions that is very rewarding as almost everyone visits a dentist, not once and not twice, but on a recurring basis. However, the path to being an illustrious oral health doctor is not a straight one as an aspiring dentist would need first to take a required Pre-Dentistry course before actually the main course is served.

Pre-Dentistry is not necessarily a specific degree. For most schools offering Pre-Dentistry programs, they usually have a list of various math and science courses wherein most subjects or units can be credited if so a student decides to pursue a Doctor of Dentistry or Doctor of Dental Surgery program. However, some schools do offer a certificate or diploma programs for Pre-Dentistry wherein the enrollees are groomed to have a career in the dental industry like dental assistants, dental supplies and equipments representatives and whatever else except being a dentist.

Most colleges who offer a Dentistry program usually would list the following courses as eligible Pre-Dentistry courses: BS Biology, BS Chemistry, BS Physics, BS Social Science/Humanities and BS Biochemistry. Because Pre-Dentistry is a prelude to Dentistry, it is important that students indicate during their admission that their purpose is actually to get admitted to dental school. For example, a student got admitted to a BS Biology program but did not indicate he have plans to pursue Dentistry when he is about to graduate from his undergraduate course. The Office of the Registrar would have no choice but to turn him down because he did not register under the Pre-Dentistry program. This is the reason why Pre-Dentistry, as a program, was instituted in the first place, to filter fickle-minded students who might be bright enough to be admitted but not dedicated enough to finish up to becoming a licensed dentist. So, Pre-Dentistry programs are usually now in most famous universities and colleges because it is also a good way to control the volume of aspiring dentists which literally keep on increasing year-on-year. Usually, the schools require students under a Pre-Dentistry program to maintain a grade level; otherwise, they are withdrawn from the contention of being admitted to dental school.

On the point of view of the students, Pre-Dentistry gives them the luxury of having to focus on becoming dentists but really don’t tie them up to it. Because admission to dental school is a fierce arena, students are given leeway as to make a change of heart and actually pursue other fields of studies or options in life should they find that 8 years (the usual time to students become a stand alone licensed dentist) is not worth the while or later they will realize that extracting teeth and inserting hands on somebody else’s oral cavities, is the life they want would not want to lead. Should they realized that they don’t want to pursue dental school after Pre-Dentistry, then they can do so as they can pursue other fields as they have not actually started dental school yet.

If there is one medical profession that enjoys the perks of the title of being doctors, it is the dentists minus the stress of a patient whose life might depend on an operation. However, to become one, one has to pass Pre-Dentistry.

The Dictionary defines Pre-medical as relating to or engaging in the preliminary medical studies that must be completed before entering medical school. In medical jargon it is a terminology to illustrate a route an undergraduate follows so as to become a medical student. It relates to the caseloads that prepare an undergraduate student for medical school, such as pre-med assignment, volunteer works, medical experience, research, and the application process.

Pre-medical is not a major, per se, but a guiding principle to the education needed for the admission to medical schools. A pre-medical student can major in any subject provided he completes the attentiveness and focus in the preparatory professional studies. Inasmuch as students are not offered option of a pre-medical major by most colleges and universities, he is allowed to select any undergraduate major in any field of study provided that some obligatory courses are finished.

Generally, such courses are centered to the scientific fields of chemistry and biology that are required in medical admission test. It also complies with the pre-requisite requirements by medical schools. This is why pre-med students en route to a major related to one of those subjects do not at all major in a technical field as an undergraduate.

In the first year at college, the average pre-medical student organizes his subjects to accept the required courses. Some students after a semester continue extracurricular activities showing commitment to medicine. Although not a requirement, most pre-medical students go on to major the natural sciences: chemistry or physics.

To meet the pre-medical requirements to suffice the taking up of the typical courses are: 1. General Chemistry (2 semesters/3 quarter, with laboratories); 2. General Biology (2 semesters/3 quarter, with laboratories); 3. Organic Chemistry (2 semesters/3 quarter, with laboratories); 4. General Physics (2 semesters/3 quarter, with laboratories); 5. Quarters/semesters of math are required, plus Calculus 1 and either Calculus 2; 6. English and Writing courses.

Upper level biology and chemistry electives include such as cellular biology, biochemistry, physical chemistry, genetic, etc. Some schools oblige general humanities credits and others require courses in English, Psychology or other subjects.

Pre-medical is a curriculum intended to prepare the student for medical college admission test and the hardships encountered in medical school. It unites related areas of study such as chemistry, biology, and biochemistry, and provides solid background in physics and mathematics. Being a rigid course that requires a full time attention to studies, Pre-medical firmly obliges students forget about nightlife most often. The one reason for Pre-medical is the weeding out of entrants to Medical School.

Completing the bachelor’s degree in Pre-medical studies, students must follow the competitive admission to and the successful completion of professional studies and training. To obtain college course credit, pre-medical students are required exposure to the health professions through volunteer work and internship. Pre-medical students were instructed to embrace fully the rigors of medical study and engaged fully in the current problems in health care.

The study of the important science courses, the ability to communicate, and understand human experience and human nature spring out a dynamic and vigorous education that Pre-medical draws out. The certificate program in Pre-medical studies was not created just on the belief that knowledge in science prepares students become efficient physicians. The student must have the perception and compassion to the emotion, culture, and factors affecting the environment that motivate behaviors of people who will be their patients. Genuine concern for them must voluntary leap out from their hearts. That is what Pre-medical is in its full meaning.
