ECPI University Reviews - Associate in Dental Assistant
Review of Dental Assistant Associate Degrees
Complete Joke. My daughter is Still unemployed with a degree. They did not assist her with getting a job. When she graduated Waist of my GI Bill. They stated they would assist her but did not. No one wants to hire a first time Dental Assistant with minimum experience and ECPI job entry program is not effective.
I...for the life of me can't seem to understand why anyone would ever consider ECPI University to be beneficial for military members. All they want is that GI Bill. Nevermind your technical training or hands-on experience. Oh, and did I mention they make it damn near impossible to transfer credits from other ACCREDITED schools. I had to start over from scratch. Money is their motive. You fail to attend one day, and you can literally fail a whole class, due to it being an accelerated program, and guess what....you're paying for that same class all over again. It's best if you have children to make sure they're NEVER sick or have to stay home. The classrooms are freezing cold, there are only overpriced vending machines, and lunch breaks are only 20 minutes, which gives you zero time to even pick up something. I could go on for days. I'm disappointed in myself for staying so long. A transfer is in my near future.
What a disaster the dental department is becoming. Hiring new teacher and literally just throwing them in. It's insane what our 5 hours in class is spent on in a LAB!!... Watching her text, look at Facebook, listening to her talk about her kids and boyfriend, music, cars, and never nothing said about x-rays that we were trying to learn on our own without an instructor. I'm confused on the subject i have a state board in, why I pay so much tuition and literally waste time and money, and why she was even paid for today. And this isn't just today. 3rd class with this woman I hoped she just needed to get her legs under her, but no she's young and really just doesn't care at all. This is ridiculous! I would love to know who I could actually speak to about this because it's insane the things I hear in this class instead of what I'm paying for.
Please don't go here... you can research everything they teach you online AND get your board test done on your own. TOTAL EXPENSIVE SCAM. Then when you graduate they call you every day to see if you have found a job just so career services can get a money credit... this school is too expensive for what the teach you. A community college degree is the SAME and way less... I ended up owing 17,000 for 16 months... WITH government assistance.
Upon coming to ECPI, I was immediately embraced with a warm sense of belonging. The staff and faculty were of the highest caliber. The students, whether young or not so young were accepted by one another as equals on a level learning field. The instruction given was well explained and consistent with the course syllabus. The amount of knowledge that was available to be tapped into was astounding. I attended the Dental Program and could not have been more pleased with the attention given to every detail of the curriculum. The hands on training that I received prepared me real world encounters as a Dental Assistant. I would strongly urge anyone thinking of attending ECPI to make the move and sign up today.
