Should I apply to undergraduate- or graduate-entry dentistry degrees?
Students are eligible to apply for undergraduate-entry degrees straight from high school, with a partially finished undergraduate degree, or with a completed undergraduate degree. These programs do not require a DAT, and are 5 years in length.
If you have a completed undergraduate degree and have written the Canadian or American DAT, you are eligible to apply to graduate-entry dentistry degrees. These programs are 4 years in length.
Both bachelor and master (doctor) dentistry degrees allow the graduate to practice dentistry.
