What impressed you negatively?

"Just my two cents-- Faculty kept talking about the amount of money their graduated dentists earn. Based on what they have emphasized in presentations, the school focuses on training their students to be competent dentists, but de-prioritizes improving oral health via service and research (coincidentally the second half of their mission statement). They sometimes mention research, but students don't get involved much, especially once clinical training begins. This is a good school for students looking for a solid foundation in dentistry (plus other procedural certificates) and a high-paying salary. Not for students interested in making a big impact in oral health through research or dental public health." Report Response
