    @cindylll Know nothing about BS/DDS programs but familiar with BS/MD programs.

    1. No program will prevent you to apply to regular UG program.
    Though people may say (based on their own experience) very few schools may not admit UG if not selected for combined programs and if school believes the student has high chance for combined programs in some other schools if not their school (to protect their yield for UG - ex: WashU and Northwestern U for BS/MD).

    2. Also few programs you may have to apply separately with all the nuances like transcripts, LOR, app etc. One set to regular UG and one set to the combined program office.

    Check this out, may be somewhat outdated information though, some of them may have discontinued. You can check each website individually and call up the schools if any questions.

    You can apply, but make sure if you actually want to go to the school, call the admissions office.

    People who don't get into dual-degree programs are often yield protected because schools know they are usually only interested in the program.
