Bachelor of Science in Dental Therapy Program
A one-in-a-kind program for aspiring dental students
Students enter the University of Minnesota Dental Therapy Program after completing one year of prerequisite college coursework. The 28 month year-round program allows students to complete a Bachelor of Science degree in as little as 40 months, providing maximum opportunities for those eager to start their dental therapy careers. The program is the only midlevel provider education in country that grants a baccalaureate degree and is affiliated with an accredited school of dentistry. Dental therapy students take several courses with dental and dental hygiene students, and all students learn together in School of Dentistry clinics, which model a general practice.
*** Due to program curriculum changes, the Dental Therapy program will not be accepting bachelor track applications for the fall 2013 incoming class. We will continue to update website content as new information becomes available.
