    Baylor ESIR?

    Can anyone explain how the ESIR program at Baylor works? To my knowledge they are the only program on ERAS that has a separate ESIR program to apply to directly. An applicant can choose Diagnostic radiology or ESIR. Information online is minimal. Thanks so much.

    Hello Fellow Dentists, I am thinking about enrolling with Baylor's implant continuum course which starts at the end of this month, but I do not know if it is worth it since you only place and restore 3 implants and the price is too expensive for only 3 implants.

Is there a reason the tuition is this low? Are all TX schools like that? Are TX schools more selective, or prefer...
