"Toxic Environment, Disorganization, Huge gaps in instruction, General Unprofessionalism by faculty (ie. Faculty Completely unprepared to give lessons, disorganization, blaming students for their own mistakes, not allowing students to do procedures)" | Report Response

"The lack of experience that a seasoned dental school would have, the unequal distribution of procedures across students in the clinic." | Report Response

"Some classes are disorganized. I attribute this to the school being new and in a few years this issue should be fixed as they find a groove." | Report Response

How do students from this program do after graduation - are they adequately prepared for practice?

"Probably among the least prepared. Faculty show up completely unprepared to teach. Blame culture where students are blamed for not knowing things that weren't taught." | Report Response

"Most of them enter GPRs (especially if they are from the northeast), some find jobs in private practice right away, and 10% of the inaugural graduating went on to pursue specialty residencies right out of dental school." | Report Response

"First class graduates this year" | Report Response

What are rotations like?

"Hospital based dental rotations, Special needs" | Report Response

"There are 2 to 3 weeklong hospital rotations regionally where students can learn hospital-based dentistry in a GPR program, and another 1 week rotation in a special needs dental clinic." | Report Response

Any other information you want to share?

"DO NOT ATTEND for at least 5 years. Most of the Dentistry I have learned was off of youtube due to the poor instruction we got here. You may say that because I was part of the first class I should've expected it, but tell that to my 400k student debt. Program is as disorganized as they come and problems start at the top." | Report Response

"Touro CDM has a lot of unrealized potential. What would help is better triage and distribution of patient cases according to procedure. Additionally, the onboarding of more faculty who are specifically trained or experienced in education would improve the didactic curricula." | Report Response
