    You can major in anything, you just need to take the required courses for dental school (google "required courses dental school" or "dental school requirements").

    Most colleges have a pre-health advisory group -- contact them when you choose a college.

    Technically anything, but you are "recommended" to take upper bio/chemistry level courses.
