To be a dentist in the United States, one needs to earn a Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) or a Doctor of Dental Sciences (DDS) at a dental school. In order to enroll in one of the 67 accredited dental schools in the country, they need a bachelor’s degree along with high grades in a math or science-focused major. Dental school takes 3 years and combines hands-on learning with classroom education. Dentists wishing to enter one of the 12 ADA-recognized specialized dental fields will need 3 additional years of training.
