Is that true? I...

    What do you like about your dental school?

    Early clinical exposure, reputable curriculum, etc. all sounds nice, but don't all dental schools these days offer this? They all sound similar to me. I'm looking for major differences in methodology/teaching, but it's difficult to find that info on schools' websites alone. Can any current...
