Here's what our graduates have to say

New York University College of Dentistry, DMD Candidate, Class of 2018
University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine, NIH Research Fellow, 2013 – 2014

"The years I spent at Barry University as a Biology major were of great importance for my personal and academic growth. My Biology professors provided me with a strong foundation in the basic sciences in order to prepare me for dental school so that I can fulfill my dream of becoming a dentist. When I applied to dental school, I was invited on six interviews (New York University, University of Pennsylvania, Temple University, University of Florida, Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine, and Nova Southeastern University) and received two pre-December acceptances. I am currently enrolled at New York University College of Dentistry and I could have never come this far without the outstanding educational opportunities I received at Barry."
