Pre-dentistry – Lloydminster Campus

Admission Requirements

Admission requirements for a Bachelor of Science degree vary, depending upon the area of interest, university admission requirements, and courses required in the degree. Some science programs require Biology 30, Chemistry 30, and Physics 30, so students with all three Grade 12 science courses are best prepared to pursue a variety of options in the sciences. For this particular degree, students starting at Lakeland College require the following high school courses:

University of Alberta

Alberta High School Prerequisites:
  • English 30-1
  • Pure Math 30 or Math 30-1 (Math 30-2 also recommended for STAT 151)
  • Biology 30
  • Chemistry 30
  • Physics 30
Saskatchewan High School Prerequisites:
  • A30/B30
  • Math A30/B30/C30 or Pre-Calculus 30 (Foundations of Math 30 also recommended for STAT 151)
  • Biology 30
  • Chemistry 30
  • Physics 30
University of Saskatchewan

Alberta High School Prerequisites:
  • English 30-1
  • Pure Math 30 or Math 30-1 or Math 30-2
  • Biology 30
  • Chemistry 30
  • Physics 30
Saskatchewan High School Prerequisites:
  • English A30/B30
  • Math A30/B30/C30 or Pre-Calculus 30 or Foundations of Math 30
  • Biology 30
  • Chemistry 30
  • Physics 30
Note: According to the U of S Admissions website, Dentistry applicants may present either of the new math courses for admissions purposes. However, students should be aware that if they are pursuing another pre-professional program or science degree as a “back-up plan,” Math 30-1 or Pre-Calculus 30 may be required as a prerequisite.

If you're not from Alberta or Saskatchewan, see the provincial subject equivalences page for more information. It includes Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario and Saskatchewan subject listings.

Students who are missing one or more of these requirements should contact the academic advisor, for options. For inquiries call 1 800 661 6490 ext. 5429 (direct in Lloydminster at 780 871 5429).

Going on to a dental school
In order to pursue a career in dentistry, students must complete two pre-professional years of study, including specific required courses, in a science program. Students must also take the Dental Aptitude Test (DAT) administered by the Canadian Dental Association; visit www.cda-adc.ca for more information.
