What are the best things about attending LSU Health New Orleans School of Dentistry?

LSU School of Dentistry is located in the unique and bustling city of New Orleans, Louisiana. New Orleans is known for its southern charm and hospitality, and the same applies to LSU-SD. I know many schools claim that they have a feeling of comradery and that professors are helpful, but the relationships between students and faculty is unmatched here. In my first year of dental school, my operative professor would stay at school helping students after hours multiple nights a week for an entire semester, sometimes until 11pm. Others bring their families to socials and events with students. Faculty often remind us that we are their peers and will soon be their colleagues, and I can truly say we are treated as such.
