UIC COLLEGE OF DENTISTRY Reviews


by Toothless on Mar 30, 2017

Reading a reviewer who said she was put on preventative maintenance, I came to this school expecting the same. They never put me on preventative maintenance, so I received cleanings and checkups only once every 12 to 15 months. What is even worse is that every time I was assigned a new student, they would always want to re-drill one or more of my back molars. At the time, my back teeth were in good condition. I trusted them because professors are there to supervise the students. Since I've left, I found out that was unnecessary work and will need crowns put on all my back teeth because of the holes put there by the dental school. The services may SEEM more economical there, but the damage they coulld do to your teeth can cost you more in the long run than had you gone to a real dentist (this is a school and not a dentist's office).

Dentists - A dentist is a person qualified by a doctorate in dental surgery (D.D.S.) or dental medicine (D.M.D.), licensed by the state to practice dentistry, and practicing within the scope of that license. There is no difference between the two degrees: dentists who have a DMD or DDS have the same education. Universities have the prerogative to determine what degree is awarded. Both degrees use the same curriculum requirements set by the American Dental Association's Commission on Dental Accreditation. Generally, three or more years of undergraduate education plus four years of dental school is required to graduate and become a general dentist. State licensing boards accept either degree as equivalent, and both degrees allow licensed individuals to practice the same scope of general dentistry. Additional post-graduate training is required to become a dental specialist.
