    Its going to have to be science based and it would be worth checking if the course you decide on is accepted by the unis you will apply to afterwards.

    I did a course called Medical Physiology and got into Dentistry that way, I only decided on that career path during my second year of university so the whole process was new to me but it is very possible!

    Basically anything medical related and you should be fine. Physiology, pharmacology, anatomy, immunology, neuroscience, etc.

    Hi Gucci Mane2010 which university did you apply to in order to change to dentistry because I don't think all unis will accept the change over. Thanks

    University of Leicester but I finished the degree before starting the dental degree. Applications are made at the end of your 2nd year so my preparation was mainly in year 2. Interviews and offers then came during year 3

    There's the NVQ of dental nursing, which you could do, then at least if you do decide to become a dentist, you have a lot of experience as a dental nurse and may get accepted into Dentistry?

    It's never too late, my Uncle went into the Dentistry BDS course at the age of 34!
