Dentistry (Pre)

Do you recognize the importance of sparkling teeth, healthy gums and a clean smile? Would you like to help educate people on how to better care for their teeth? Then maybe a career in dentistry is for you.

Today's dentists don't just clean and care for your teeth, they are educators. They present instructions on diet, brushing, flossing, use of fluorides and other features of dental care. Dentists are using new technology and treatments on their patients for improved dental hygiene.

Lake Michigan College's Pre-dentistry program allows you to complete the first two years of core classes that will lead to the advanced degrees you will need.
