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.
