How to get into dental school?

So, I about to start my 2 year run at a community college. I was wondering what I can do to increase my chances of getting into dental school? Other than good grades, what can help me? I'm asking because I have a low ACT score, and yes, I'm still working on improving it. Please helpful answers only.

    Honestly your chance would increase by going directly into a four year college. Usually dental school requires you take as an undergrad:

    8 hours Biology with lab.

    8 hours Physics.

    8 hours English.

    8 hours General Chemistry with lab.

    8 hours Organic Chemistry with lab.

    These classes will need to be taken at your university, not your CC.

    Intership or two while in college will be a plus. Going direct to a university would increase your chances at getting an internship.

    Get all A’s at your CC and transfer into a university ASAP.
