"SDN" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Faculty, staff, and students were very nice and straightforward. They tried their best to answer ALL of our questions and didn't sugarcoat anything. Students felt that PBL was worthwhile once they applied it in the clinic. There is a huge patient pool, an emphasis on comprehensive care, plenty of clubs and outreach opportunities, low cost of living in Indianapolis, strong clinical program, and plans to build a new school (not for at least 8-10 years though...)!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Tuition for out-of-state is the same as a private school. They also do not have enough sim-chairs in their basement lab for all of the first and second year students, so most of the time you will be at a bench with a model in your hands. You also have to purchase your instruments instead of renting them, and textbooks are not offered on CD." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I am glad I checked out the school for myself and verified that the negative posts were rumors. Except for the cost. And while the facilities certainly aren't "new", they have just as much technology as any other school and graduate very competent, skilled dentists. " Report Response
