Copied from medicine forum of course but thought it would be helpful to people who are applying for dentistry in 2010 to get an idea of what grades etc you may need for certain universities and whether their grades/UKCAT score/amount of work experience is good enough. Layout is same as in med forum.

The Dentistry and Applicants Profiles wiki page can be found here: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/wiki...icant_Profiles
