Mercyhurst University

You are here



Our newly renovated Anatomy Lab and faculty specializing in anatomy instruction and research provide an optimal training group to prepare students for entrance into Dental School. Dentists diagnose and treat problems with teeth and tissues in the mouth and educate their patients on how to maintain oral health to help with the prevention of diseases.


Students generally fulfill requirements for entrance into Dental School by completing requirements of a Biology major, but they may choose other majors under the guidance of the Pre-Health Advisor at the Mercyhurst.

The Mercyhurst Advantage

Mercyhurst offers regular standardized test review and focus groups so our students can gauge their level of preparedness for this difficult specialty from the very beginning of their educational training.
