A website by students, for students

Welcome to the Texas A&M University College of Dentistry Becoming a Dentist website - a site by students, for students.

Here you can get connected with resources from local dentists who are associated with our school and receive direct guidance from current dental students.

We are here to help you, so if you ever have any questions or would like to share your experiences, please feel free to contact us.

Service Events

The following list of events are dental related and require no experience: 

Dentistry from the Heart is a half-day event that brings dentists and dental hygienists together to provide free dental care. High school students can expect to conduct patient check-in, interact with patients and distribute food and water to those waiting in line. It is a very rewarding experience and can look great on your resume.

Check out the events link to see when Dentistry from the Heart comes to your area.

In addition, many of our student organizations at College of Dentistry enjoy involving predental students. If you would like to get plugged into one of these events, just let us know and we can provide you with further details.
