Project Purpose: Become more familiar with Orthodontics

East Carolina University

I want to go to ECU to get a bachelors degree in science and then to continue my education at ECU's dental school. To get in to this school you will need to have a minimum GPA of 3.5. You will also need to have a SAT score of 1200 math/verbal and have a highschool rank in the top 10 percent of your senior class. The tuition per year is $3,758 but with the cost of housing and books in total it will cost $15,317


Orthodontics is a specialty of dentistry that deals with the treatment of improper bites ( malocclusions ). They use braces to realign your teeth. Orthodontic treatment can be used for aesthetic reasons or can be prescribed for practacal reasons. On average orthodontists make around $200,500. It all depends on your experience.

Classes I could take in highschool that could help me:

- Chemistry

- Anatomy

- Physical Science

These classes would help because I need a degree in science to pursuit my career.

This project has helped me a lot by showing me what I need to do to follow my career and has helped me gain a better understanding about ECU and become an orthodontist.
