Great integrative curriculum, everything is brand new/state-of-the-art, strong patient pool with very complex treatment plans avialable to students since there was such a shortage of dentists there before the school opened up, supportive environment between students and faculty, ranked in the top 1/4 of schools for NBDE I performance, don't know the NBDE II ranking since their first class graduated only last year, 96% pass rate on NBDE part I.

I also chose the school because of their integrative curriculum, state of the art facilities, students seem really really happy which is a big plus, good test scores, faculty seem very helpful and nice :D plus they teach you spanish (what I heard from the students-can't go wrong with that)

Agreed, faculty is awesome there and SO damn friendly! I was chatting with a professor there who went to Harvard, the guy that heads anatomy went to UPenn, some faculty from UCLA, and most of the faculty from the old Northwestern dental school.

I graduated last year from UNLV and am now in private practice in Southern California. I was very happy with my education and my decision to go to school there. If I had to make the decision again, I would chose UNLV.

I noticed that you are from California. I was worried what patients and other Docs would think about me going to school in Las Vegas. The response has only been positive and usually they say something like, "Oh, I heard that was a great school." It makes me laugh because they don't know anything about the school, but what they say is true.

PM me if you have other questions.

I didn't think I would like the school at all being in Vegas and everything....but I pretty much fell in love with it and am so excited to have gotten in (I chose it over 4 other schools). I can't wait to go. I think their curriculum is amazing and its going to really help me learn the material not just memorize it because of how they integrate it. I'm also excited to re-learn my spanish and to have a chance to use it when I'm in the clinics. I think that is an invaluable resource for health professionals. Plus the weather is pretty dang nice there too ;)

uh not for a good 3 months of the year.....unless you like hellish heat :)

Considering I'm from Michigan and I can't stand not having the sun for half the year....uh I think I'll handle it. I hate being cold. I'd rather be hot...and tan :)
