"My time in the TWU dental hygiene program can only be described in two words, life changing. I had my share of ups and downs but each experience helped mold me into a confident and capable dental hygienist. This program not only provides its share of intellectual challenges but also an environment that fosters student success. The faculty and curriculum more than prepare one for the professional world. TWU's dental hygiene program is overall an excellent place to learn this craft and I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to enter the dental hygiene career."

"This is the most stressful thing I've done in my life. The professors make it even worst. SO called program director Dickinson does not know how to handle the situations and only shouts in students face without any reason. She makes us do stupid and unnecessary things just to keep us busy. If the students try to put a point forward, she just shuts them out without even trying to understand. What's the point of a director/advisor if she is not willing to hear the students out and only giving stupid orders. On top of that she wants students to go out in community during pandemic to do a project. The community is not willing to accept mass of people but if only Dicksinson's brain would understand, it would help us. Now, she is obsessed with face to face class in the middle of pandemic. When we tried to ask her to make lecture based class online to reduce the risk, she does not want to listen. And, if somebody gets sick, she sends a group of people home, so how is that fair. She says that if you have you KN95 mask on, you will be safe, so why are people still falling sick. being in close proximity in class increases the risk, and she needs to understand we live with our family and us getting into risk increases the risk for our family too. Doing a face to face class does not really help students because the professor do not even lecture about the related topic. All we do is self study even with their lectures. So, why not just self study right from the beginning. Plus, a lot of professor and students had to stay under quarantine, so she needs to understand that we should try our best to reduce the exposure. Just because they do not know how to use technology and they cannot shout on students, does not give her the authority to do whatever she wants. As a director, she should do things that benefits the students, not her."

"If the previous reviews didn’t make it clear, this program is a chaotic mess. They’re so strict with us buying our own PPE (which other schools provide), yet there’s dead roaches and bugs everywhere scattered throughout the clinic. During the COVID pandemic, we had to buy our own N95 masks when A&M provided it for their students. TWU didn’t even help with providing a source where we could get it from!! It’s embarrassing how busted up and raggedy this clinic looks while charging $40-$120 for a cleaning. TCC is about $20 for a cleaning and the clinic is much more presentable. Any program other than this is better. The program director (Dickenson) is scatterbrained and doesn’t hold herself accountable for everything that she changes around last minute and makes difficult for the students. The junior clinic coordinator (Spoonts) is basically the stereotypical villain and will tear you down just for her sick satisfaction. This place is a nightmare."

"Professor Grassi is just horrible. Not only she doesn’t know how to teach she is also rude with students and always speaks to them without any respect as if we’re below her. On the other hand, Spoonts is so unorganized and just can’t reach what makes her think reading the PowerPoint is teaching! We could read on our own what’s the point of lecture is she is just gonna read for us! Calling students out on camera if there is light reflecting or something she is psycho! I regret applying here"

"Professor grassi is one of the worse people ever. One student will ask something gets a complete different response from her than what she gave to another student for the same exact question. This last tells multiple students many different things she is been teaching my class wrong the whole summer. Expect to learn nothing from her. And spoonts just had mood swings she grades based on her feelings and on her mood for the day. She had no heart at all! Complaining doesn’t do anything, class evaluations are a joke no changes will be made based on students opinions and feedback."

"This is the worse environment for an education. The most unorganized place, miss communication between staff and other staff, between staff and students. They pick favorites, more of white privileged. Spoonts is only there to destroy her students mentally health. She steps on students however she wants and no one was able to stop her! Just because she knows the chancellor. Very toxic environment only while students get away with things while minorities gets stepped on. Go to Texas A&M or TCC since they actually know the true meaning behind professionalism. What does this TWU know about ethics and justice NOTHING!!!!"

"The management is so unprofesssional and always keep changing things!! They dont care about students. Some teachers keeps grudge with students if we complaint against them. That is wrong, they should improve instead of taking revenge with students. Ive personally known people who have been depressed from being in dental hygenist program."

"Don’t apply to this program! Waste of money,mental health, and nothing but disrespect to students! Professors don’t teach! They’re very unorganized.. one professor doesn’t GradE exams or anything till the last week of the semester. You never know where you stand in her class. She posts assignments last minute and expect it to be done on time! Blames everything on canvas, lectures are nothing but a waste of time, you will not learn anything we had to teach ourself by reading the books! And they made us buy a lot of unnecessary books that we didn’t even touch.. the past 2 years were nothing but stress and torture! Expect exams to be from different chapters instead of the assigned chapters, on some questions not to be mentioned in the books at all! They damaged my mental health and treated us as if were inferior. They pick favorites and Good communications doesn't not exist at this TWU hygiene. Program. 2 professors would email one person and expect that person to pass the news to the rest of the class. I wish I went somewhere else instead I would’ve saved money and myself from this toxic environment! If I think about continuing to with the masters program I’ll know for sure to choose another school. TWU never again!"

"Each review on here about the TWU dental hygiene program describes how I exactly feel about this program!! It’s crazy how these reviews are popping out now. When I applied to this program there were no reviews so I had to do it blindly with so much hope. I was very excited that I was already halfway going towards my dream! Then the first semester starts and boooom! All my dreams crashed and I had to deal with such professors in such a negative environment! I still can believe that such behavior still exist. Very disrespectful, very rude, no manner, and don’t qualify to teach! The whole time I was there I felt like someone was literally sitting on top of my chest. Anxiety and feeling hopeless were with me the whole time. These professors only exist to destroy your mental health. Why?! I couldn’t figure out why they behaved the way they did with us! Save your mental health and stay happy by applying somewhere else! Being here isn’t worth it!! TCC is way better...."

"The most unorganized, unprofessional, environment to be in. I had the worse experience at this place for straight 2 years. Very disrespectful and unethical professors. They just don’t know how to lecture and the exams are heavy and you basically teach yourself in every class. Why pay tons of money to do so? Beside that talking to them only makes things worse they hold grudges and pick favorites. If you say something or make a comment or complain it’s gonna effect your grades! Be careful! They’re so good at disrespecting you and deducting points. I’m glad it’s over and hopefully time will heal me... I got into a severe depression for 2 full years. They humiliate you and disrespect you like your nothing. Needs better management and professors that actually qualify to teach. Complaining don’t make a difference cause they back up each other. Course evaluations don’t change a thing... students are afraid and just gave up on their rights!"
