Does Vanderbilt University have..?

NetherCraft 0

anything that would help me become an orthodontist? I graduate this year (2010) & I want to go to college in Nashville, Tennessee. I requested information from Vanderbilt, and on the request form it had “Pre-Dentistry” as a choice under the majors, so I chose that. Then I looked at the website & couldn’t find “Pre-Dentistry” anywhere.

I know I will have to go to a Dental school after I graduate college..

Does anyone know if Vanderbilt has a Dental program? Or what I should major in to get there? Are there any other colleges with dental programs in/around Nashville?

Any information you could give would help a ton! thanks 🙂

  • you don’t major in “pre-dental” or “premed” or “pre-law” for undergrad. If you go to Vandy, you will have an adviser to help guide you through the appropriate course/major choices for someone who wants to go to dental school. I guess you would probably want to major in something like bio or MHS (medicine, health, and society) if you want to go into dentistry but you coulf really major in anything as long as you take the appropriate courses to prepare you for dental school.

  • Well i only know of one School of Dentistry in Nashville and that is at

    Meharry Medical College…i am pretty sure that vandy does not have one. Meharry is a good school…it is pretty small but people go there from all over the country and the world for that matter.

    Here is the link for the MMC School of Dentistry:

    The biggest and dental school in Tn is in Memphis…i think at University of Tennessee Memphis.

    Vanderbilt Medical Center does have a orthodontic department and they do take residents in that program…but they all come from outlying dental schools.
