4 years undergraduate degree required by most dental schools, no specific major but most require classes in bio, chemistry, physics, etc.

most dental schools are 4 years in length, Univeristy of Pacific in Calif has a 3 year program for people who dont want to have a life.

pass dental school, take National Board Dental Exams part I and II, take a regional or state board exam and a jurisprudence exam (laws of state concerning dentistry)

good luck to you, i finish in 6 months
