“Deciding to apply to the BMPD Program was a no-brainer, because not only was it a post-bacc program that specifically focuses on dentistry, but also because I knew that it would allow me to become a well-rounded and very competitive applicant for dental school. The small class size allows for more one-on-one learning with your professors and it provides an excellent group-based learning environment that I never encountered in my undergraduate studies.”
