west coast?

Looking for some good pre-dental schools that are somewhat simple to get into if you have 3.3 gpa and 1100+ sat.

Try the University of the Pacific in Calif - good pre-dental programs and has one of the best dental schools in the west. Your stats would be fine for undergrad application purposes.

Other suggestions: U of Redlands, U of San Diego,
Santa Clara U, Willamette U (Oregon)

Carolyn seems like you have a pretty good knowledge in pre-dental.

is there any requisite tests need to be taken or anything to get into a pre-dental school if your planning on that field?

Anything you should be strong with in subjects to excel in dental classes.

The American Dental Association has an excellent page on dentistry careers that discusses undergrad preparation, testing requirements, and what dental schools are looking for:
http://www.ada.org/public/education/careers/index.asp

Basically, what they say is that it is not necessary to major in science to apply to dental school but it is necessary to complete a prescribed series of science courses including biology, organic and inorganic chemistry, biochem, and physics.

Additionally, check out the information at the American Student Dental Association - www.asdanet.org and the American Dental Education Association www.adea.org.

Between these three sites, most questions should be answered. The ADA offers a job shadowing program that might be very useful for people considering a dental career as well. Details are at the site above.
