Predental Advisory Club

The Predental Advisory Club at The University of Iowa is a student organization to provide you an opportunity to learn more about the dental profession. If you are planning a career in health care, enjoy working with your hands, or are just a little bit curious as to what dentistry is all about, we invite you to join us.

Our goal is to introduce individuals to the dental profession and help to prepare them for dental school by having guest speakers and organizing hands-on activities that provide insight into the dental profession. We hope to answer students' questions by bringing in current predoctoral and graduate dental students, admissions officers and faculty from the College of Dentistry to present programs.

Joining the Predental Advisory Club is easy; all you have to do is attend the meetings. We meet three times each semester, in the evening, in the dental science building.

Meeting information will be posted on our website as well as other items of interest to Predental students.

In the meantime, the following contacts may be made to answer your questions:
