I am very familiar with the Denver program and can tell you that as far as OMS programs go, it is at the bottom. The director will ensure that your life is a living hell for all four years. In addition, you will receive virtually no impant / implant site prep training. They get plenty of trauma but the treatment philosophy is a joke; they place almost everything into CR-MMF. Orthognathic surgery is likewise a joke. In fact, it was so low that the ADA had to step in and force them to improve. So they now make their residents sit in with local OMS Drs in private practice to at least get some experience in this area. You will however get to extract plenty of teeth on the homeless but I think you can find this anywhere. The plus is that you get to live in Denver. That is about it. I can assure that there is a reason they often have unmatched spots. But, if your grades are not that great its definately a place you can get into. Goodluck.
