Prospective Students

Pre-Health Advisor Resources

Our Pre-Health Advisors serve as some of our most valuable resources in the recruitment of dental students. Assisting students through the pre-application and admissions process, as well as providing them with current information, our goal is to provide you the resources to best help your students.

Information for Pre-Health Advisors:

When working with students who are navigating their career options, we encourage you to direct them to consider dentistry. Here we have more resources from the American Dental Association, U.S. News & World Report and The Ohio State College of Dentistry.

College Visits and Fair Invitations:

Our admission staff travels extensively throughout the state of Ohio to meet with prospective students, pre-health advisors and Pre Dental Clubs in both one-on-one visits, classroom speaking opportunities and attending select fairs. If you would like to schedule a visit with our office, please contact dentistryadmissions@osu.edu.

Virtual Visits:

In an effort to expand our reach, we are offering exciting virtual visits with the Admissions Office. Send a request via email with the dates and times that work best for your organization. We will schedule during those times that your club, student group or class meets. During the virtual visit, an admissions counselor will Skype and cover our entire admissions presentation and answer any questions your group may have.

Visit Us:

Come see the College of Dentistry first-hand! We invite both prospective students and Pre-Health Advisors to join us at our various admissions events. Please check out our Calendar here for upcoming event dates and times. Interested in a group visit? The Admission Office will host groups of 5-12 students for personalized on-campus visit. Please contact porter,123@osu.edu for more information on bringing your group to campus.
