Reviews

3 Review quotes:

"UNE has a Pass/Fail curriculum with passing set at 70%."
"Additionally, the rate of faculty turnover is quite high. We see many faculty members come and go, which is difficult when one of your favorites leaves"
"In D4 year, students go out on externships for 12 weeks to sites around northern New England where they work under the mentorship of dentists in the area gaining speed and independence in their skill set."

What are the best things about attending University of New England College of Dental Medicine?

UNE has a Pass/Fail curriculum with passing set at 70%. This helps take away competition amongst the class and allows us to foster a strong culture of helping each other succeed. Each class at UNE shares a collaborative Google Drive where people import notes, study guides, recordings of lectures, etc. for everyone’s benefit. While the Pass/Fail curriculum eliminates the stress of striving for perfect grades and getting straight A’s, the school has implemented Letters of Commendation in each course as a way to distinguish students in the top 10-15% of scores in each course.

What are the worst things about attending University of New England College of Dental Medicine?

Since the school is fairly new, the curriculum changes year-to-year as the administration works out kinks in the program. At times the information/structure of some classes can feel disorganized; however, administration takes student feedback HIGHLY into consideration and changes things based on the information/opinions that we provide which is great for future classes.
