The Pre-Dental Society is a student organization committed to helping Tech students prepare themselves for entrance into Dental School.  We hold monthly meetings that feature guest speakers and give members the necessary resources to build a competitive application.  Our activities include community service, socials, and trips to Texas Mission of Mercy events and in-state dental schools.  This year, we'll be having a new monthly event called "Dine with a Dent" where members will have the opportunity to eat with and hear from local dentists in a casual setting. 

Think Dentistry may be for you? Come out and join us!
