3 Review quotes:

"The worst thing about NYU is its administrative and didactic disorganization. This disorganization has become increasingly frustrating in recent years."
"NYU’s clinical experience is nothing short of intensive and extensive; first year students spend a minimum of three days each week in lab performing various preparations and restorations."
"The school’s preclinical areas are only large enough for one-quarter of the incoming class at a time. While this is not an issue during normal lab hours, it becomes a big issue once practical examinations begin."

What are the best things about attending NYU College of Dentistry?

NYU’s greatest strength lies in the large scope of both clinical and research opportunities provided to students. NYU’s clinical experience is nothing short of intensive and extensive; first year students spend a minimum of three days each week in lab performing various preparations and restorations. Students are also concurrently attending lectures each week involving the nature of these preparations, restorations, as well as tooth anatomy and development. It is a rigorous introduction into operative dentistry as well as the oral cavity. While at times this amount of operative experience can be overwhelming, it is an invaluable experience. The sheer amount of exposure and practice you receive is impressive and you will feel confident in your understanding of every type of preparation and restoration taught to you within your first year.

What are the worst things about attending NYU College of Dentistry?

The worst thing about NYU is its administrative and didactic disorganization. This disorganization has become increasingly frustrating in recent years. Most professors at the school, especially within the basic science departments, are incredibly focused on their personal research projects. It quickly becomes apparent that, for many, teaching is seen as a requirement rather than the privilege of passing of knowledge to future colleagues. Thus faculty investment in their own courses can be lacking and their participation in the course outside of mandatory lecture hours can be frustrating. The clinical professors show a far greater passion for education but this dichotomy can make the basic sciences faculty seem even worse. Often material covered on exams coming across as arbitrary, as the professors do not clearly convey core concepts in lecture. Faculty also tend to meander from large concept to large concept.

What do students need to know/what do you wish you knew before attending NYU College of Dentistry?

The most important things that can be conveyed about NYU are the rigorous clinical education as well as the self-driven nature of the program. NYU will offer you whatever you seek, but what you receive at the end of the day will be proportional to the amount of effort you put into your education. This is a double-edged sword: if you seek the bare minimum, you can pass and receive your degree with less effort and toil than others and move forward with your career while not necessarily becoming the professional you could have been. At the same time you can pour every fiber of your being into your education and become second to none.

About school of dentistry

Imagine a world where everyone smiles.® NYU Dentistry DDS students benefit from the breadth and depth of experiences and resources that only the most comprehensive academic oral health center in the country, in the greatest city in the world, can offer. Founded in 1865, NYU College of Dentistry is the third oldest and largest dental school in the United States, educating nearly 10 percent of the nation's dentists. NYU offers professional training leading to the DDS degree, as well as advanced education in the dental specialties. Additional programs include a bachelor’s degree and an associate’s degree in dental hygiene, continuing dental education programs, Programs for International Dentists, and master’s degrees in biomaterials, clinical research, and oral biology. We’re focused on the future -- advancing oral health, researching new treatments and methodologies, and preparing students to become exceptional providers and to lead the profession, with ample opportunities to “think big.” In just the past few years, NYU Dentistry has opened the Oral Health Center for People with Disabilities; the NYU Pain Research Center; NYU Dentistry Brooklyn Patient Care; Metro Community Health Centers at NYU Dentistry, a federally qualified health center located on the first floor of the NYU Dental Center in Manhattan, providing DDS students with experience in the medical management of dental patients; and the NYU Dentistry Center for Oral Health Policy and Management, an interdisciplinary think tank that is working to develop and promote a national agenda that recognizes the fundamental relationship between oral health and overall health.

Core values

Since the founding of New York University in 1831, the institution has held a mission that is “in and of the City” and “in and of the world.” The College of Dentistry shares this philosophy and commitment to continually strive to foster a dynamic and rigorous teaching and learning environment that represents a diversity of perspectives, experiences, and approaches to engage in ongoing systematic and focused efforts to attract and retain students, faculty, and staff from diverse backgrounds, and to systematically evaluate comprehensive strategies to further enhance the institutional climate for diversity. The College has a strong commitment to diversity and inclusion within the structure, curriculum, and institutional climate of the College, and works intentionally across the many areas of the institution to provide resources, programs, and support services that help to cultivate and maintain an educational environment that is inclusive of divergent backgrounds and historically underrepresented groups across the areas of race, ethnicity, culture, age, religion, ability, sexual orientation, gender and gender identity, socioeconomic status, national origin, and educational background.
