The Dental Summer Enrichment Program at the University of Detroit Mercy (UDM) School of Dentistry is a six-week initiative aimed at exposing students to the dental field and encouraging them to pursue careers in dentistry. Students will strengthen their academic skills, network with dental professionals and students, and participate in hands-on activities, seminars, workshops, and other active learning opportunities. They also develop study skills, practice strategies for taking the Dental Admission Test (DAT), and receive assistance with the dental school application process.

Participants must be U.S. citizens or nationals. They must have completed at least two years of college and demonstrated an interest in pursuing a dental degree. Students must have at least a 2.75 GPA and must submit an official transcript as part of the application process. Participants must also be economically or educationally disadvantaged.
