What impressed you positively?

"How much clinical experience you would receive. There are no specialty programs, therefore root canals dont automatically get shuffled directly to Endo residents. The 4th year student who took me around said you have enough work to make you feel comfortable starting a practice directly out of school. Also everyone has done well on there Part 1 and Part 2 boards. Everything seamed clean and updated. Staff was generally concerned about the students. The student that took me around was glad that he received his education at Creighton. I asked if he had anything negative to say about the program and he said no. It would only be petty complaints not worth mentioning, the staff was concerned about your success at Creighton." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My experience was great, I would have no problem spending 4 years at Creighton. Although I am keeping a specialty program in mind after dental school, it is nice to know that you would have a comfortable level of proficiency as a general dentist. Dr Ayers was great, he apparently was very thorough in looking over my application. He asked for explainations where it was needed, very easy to talk to and also honest about his opinion on your chances and added what things may strengthen your application. Although you schedule your own (Informal)interview, it gives you the opportunity to explain any concerns with your application you may not have coveyed on the application. Also they receive over 2000 applications a year, it shows an initiative on your part to see their school and express your motivation in wanting to become a dentist." Report Response
