What A Levels are needed to work to becoming a dentist?

Q. HI, it would really help if you would answer this question. I am currently studying my GCSE’s and have wanted to persue a career in dentistry for a very long time. I am determined to get there but I am confused about what A levels are needed to do this. I understand that A level chemistry and Biology is a must, but I have recently Chosen my Alevels and i’d Like to know whether a maths a level is really necessary? I have not chosen this as my alevel because I didn’t think I could achieve an a or b in it. At gcse I manage to get a C-B and Will try hard to get a B in my following exams. So I have chosen Chemistry, Biology English(language and litreture) and phycology for my A levels. is this suitable for a cource in dentistry. I am hoping to get 8A*’s a few A’s and one b in maths, so what do you think! Please get back as soon as possible because I am trying my best to become a sucsessful dentist!,
A. Unfortunatley it was a very long time ago that I applied for dental school and I’m sure things have changed since then. It must be a lot harder to get in now, (luckily for me) but I know that good grades at chemistry and biology are a must, the other A-levels are less relevant, more the grade you acheive. It might be worth finding out by contacting a dental school or asking your careers advisor, good luck call me in 6 years if you need a job!!

Hello andrew I m in the process of choosing my A Levels as I also want to study dentistry. Do you know if certain dental schools have a preference for which A levels you do?

Ill look you up in 6 years and refer back to this website if it still exists!

Hello Andrew
I am about to take my final GCSE’s this summer and would like to study dentistry and become a Navy dentist. I am good at biology, currently getting A* but chemistry and physics are both weak topics of mine.
For my A levels i was thinking of taking Biology and other subjects not related to either sciene or math. If i get top grades in Biology and my other subjects at A level, although not being Chemistry, is a chance of still be accepted into Dental school or am i setting my aims to high?
