"Clinical experiences. Students have rotations at the dental school itself, as well as, the local hospital and various community clinics. The school is in an underserved area, so there is a good range of cases for the students." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The school is in Detroit where there are a bunch of abandoned buildings and broken street lights so not a place you feel completely safe to roam around. Being on the campus is safe, but I don't think the surrounding area is. Many students drive in from surrounding suburbs. School closes completely at 10pm, so no late night studying on campus" Report Response
