Pharmacist becoming a Dentist

Asked 3 months ago by Guest (120 points)

I've been thinking about trying to get into dental school for quite a while but I come from a unique background and was wondering if I could get some advice? I'm actually a practicing pharmacist in Australia however I'm a duel American and Australian citizen and would want to return to the US if I were to study dentistry. Pharmacy in Australia is also a bachelor degree with a lengthy post graduate licensing process not a doctoral degree like in America. I don't know if I'd have to do prerequisites at a community college or something because all my classes where uniquely tailored to pharmacy. Another thing is I only achieved a 3.1 GPA which I'm aware would be considered quite low for a dental school applicant coming from an American University. If anyone could help me out it would be much appreciated.  Another thing I forgot to mention is that I was a commissioned officer in the Australian army as a pharmacist. I don't know if this would be considered favourable?
