IMPORTANT: These courses are intended to help you finish your pre-requisites for CU-Denver’s Dental programs. This is NOT considered a major or a minor at UCCS. UCCS does not offer a Dentistry program. However, if you are planning to apply to the Doctorate of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.) program at the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine, UCCS offers a pre-professional program to assist you in preparation.

Most students accepted to the University of Colorado School of Dentistry have completed at least four years of undergraduate work and have received an undergraduate degree. Students must complete the Dental Admissions Test (DAT) before applying to dental school.

Information about the dentistry program may be obtained from the website: http://www.ucdenver.edu/academics/colleges/dentalmedicine/ProgramsAdmissions/Pages/ProgramsAdmissions.aspx.

For more information on the pre-professional program, contact your advisor.

    Freshmen and Prospective Students: Bev Kratzer (719) 255-3745, bkratzer@uccs.edu
    Sophomore and above: Dr. Wendy Haggren - (719) 255-4156, whaggren@uccs.edu


Since pre-dental students will need to graduate before entering dental school, it will be necessary to complete an academic major and other College of Letters, Arts, and Sciences degree requirements. This will include 6 hours of English Literature or Humanities, and other electives to complete degree or minimum hours.

Only 60 hours from a community college can apply to the degree.
