Utah College of Dental Hygiene Reviews
This school is very small but I really enjoyed it. They only have one program which is dental hygiene and I found out that I liked it. My previous college experience was stressful as I was kicked out of anatomy lab and the rec areas because the pre-med students or nursing students or athletes were more important. I liked the fact that I did not have to "share" everything with other programs and students. It is nice being able to see the same 60 classmates every day. We are like one big family and have grown very close together. The course work was very hard however. Some of the teachers are very strict and expect quite a bit out of you and don't allow you to just "skate" through their courses. Dave and Cinda are very helpful and Dr. Allan and Professors Molen and Brown are great! This school accepted me when other schools would not even talk to me because I did not have a 4.0 GPA. I liked the faculty here. They were always nice to me and believed in my ability to become a hygienist. One of my only complaints would be the small computer lab we had when we started but half way through my program they remodeled the computer lab and expanded the upstairs student break room into an awesome lounge and made it much bigger. I am proud to be a graduate.
The professors at this school have been great. Dr. Allan, Professor Molen, Professor Green, and Professor Brown were my favorite. I was really glad that most of the classes were straight forward. There was not a ton of "busy" work. Sometimes there seemed to be assignments that did not make any sense but as school progressed and I was further along in the program the need for those pesky assignments started to make sense. Really they just want you to succeed. I also LOVED, LOVED, LOVED, the fact that we would take our national clinical boards (WREB) at the school. There are only two schools out of seven in the state that allow you to take your full boards (Weber State and the Utah College of Dental Hygiene). I was so relieved that I was able to take the boards at my school and that I did not have to road trip or fly to another school. I saw so many students from other schools that had to come to my school to do their testing and they just looked so lost. Me and all of my classmates had already been through practicing boards three times at UCDH and we all did well.
The instructors here are very knowledgeable but they are also very firm. Dr. Allan, President Molen, Professor Green, and Prof. Brown are great. They expect the best you can give. They don't really just let you just "skate" through class. If you fall asleep in class you will regret the "pop" quizzes because you won't do well. That being said the concentrated workload is very challenging. It is not easy to go to class all day long (8a.m. to 4p.m.) Monday-Thursday every day for 20 months straight. You do get two to three week breaks between semesters but other than that it is year round (no long summer breaks). For me it was worth it because I really wanted to get through with school and get on with my life (home, career, family, husband, kids, etc.)
