"I had high hopes very early on in my college education to be accepted into this program, but now I wish I had looked into other programs more. While I understand we are required to find our own patients, we were severely limited in how we advertised about the clinic. How can I find patients for my education when I can not advertise on social media? It was suggested that you speak to people and pass out flyers, but with the rigorous schedule and the amount of self-teaching that is required for courses it was next to impossible. It took a lot of pestering for the director to finally look into advertising through the school for our program. The program director is chaotic and will preach about being a "trail blazer" in the profession, but doesn't listen when we offer suggestions for improvements or changes. How can we trail blaze the profession when you are not taking us seriously as students? The program director often sends announcements of important information through one student and once we are all thoroughly confused, we then receive an email of information late in the evening or middle of the night. During my interview, they asked if I was comfortable taking online classes, then they proceeded to change every class to an on-campus class... many of those classes would have been just fine if they had stayed online. I think they seriously just changed the classes from online to in-person because many of the professors can not use technology. We are an evidenced-based profession, which means many things can change as new evidence is discovered, if you can keep up with the changes in your profession then you should be able to watch a tutorial to learn how to use basic computer functions. Overall, I found this program to be very disorganized, stressful, financially draining, and emotionally draining."

"I am going to be really honest here. Just DON'T DO IT. If you want to be a good hygienist, TWU is not for you. So unorganized and unprofessional. The classes were a complete waste of time, they do not teach you anything, and expect you to know it all. Basically everything we learned was self taught. The assignments and test are something else. They assign you coursework like you do not have a life, and do the assignments help you prepare for the exam? Definitely NO. They do not even grade the assignments until the end of semester, and at the end they just throw you off with a low grade. And do they clarify the reason for the grade? NO, you still have to email them to which they would not reply. There is no communication between the professor and student. Everytime they email you, just be ready for surprise (not a good one). They make unnecessary changes and email you at the last moment, like around 12 midnight or 5 in the morning, and expect us to be ready at 8 in the morning. You do not live a normal life in this program. NO sleep. Even after studying 24/7 and giving your 100%, the result is a joke. They will constantly pressurize you and make you feel stupid. If you do not know something and ask them, they will make you feel stupid for not knowing the content. I knew dental hygiene is tough, and I was ready to work hard for it, but the professors suck out all the positivity. If you are accepted in any other college, do yourself a huge favor and go to other school. Even any community college is better than this. Atleast it will save you financially. OH yes! also they make you buy unwanted books, materials, equipments that you do not ever use."

"This program is the most unorganized and unprofessional environment I've ever been in. The program director often sends class announcements through 1 student to pass the information on to the whole class, which is incredibly unprofessional. The lack of communication between faculty and students is astounding and unacceptable. The professors do not treat any students with any respect. In-person classes were a huge waste of time because there was never any teaching and I had to go home and learn the material on my own. We are often spoken down to and treated as if we are less than. It is too expensive and they expect students to pay for their own supplies and equipment. The program forces students to attend an annual dental hygiene meeting in another city far away and our hotel, food, and gas is expected to be at our own expense. I've spent thousands of dollars during this program when I know that other dental hygiene programs have a far better education and are much cheaper. Had I known how I would be treated and the major expense prior to acceptance into this program, I would have never applied in the first place. For anyone who wants to apply to the TWU Dental Hygiene program, DO NOT DO IT! An associates degree at a community college or Texas A&M is far better than this toxic waste dump."

"The professors in this program can’t teach they talk about their personal life throughout lecture and then you get to read and self study and teach yourself. They’re such tough graders and the exams are nothing but a joke! One professor you expect to get tested over anything but the books I still couldn’t figure out her puzzle like where in hell does she get those questions from! For sure anywhere but the assigned chapters she is too lazy to check the exam questions before printing out the exams and yet if you try to explain your point of view she basically make look stupid. Classes get added each semester that the previous class didn’t have to take. It’s just a mess. If your thinking about applying here or if you already applied go with another option I fee sorry for the upcoming classes they live is going to suck for 2 years! Did I say it’s way too expensive and more classes gets added to increase your tuition? Yeah that’s right! Very unprofessional and unorganized"

"This school is a joke. Worse place for dental hygiene ever. Not having so many review screwed most of us. The faculty are so unorganized and unethical. They make sure you understand nothing about dental hygiene, they’re goal Is to crush you and show you that they’re above you. Never felt this stressed or uncomfortable speaking to any of them. You set up a meeting to talk to them, you walking out from the meeting knowing him much they don’t care about you!!! I wish someone told me about this place before. I’m not sure how CODA is actually allowing such low program proceeds."

"This program is the most unprofessional, unorganized and unethical I’ve ever came across. Never had to deal with careless professors before. I was expecting things to be hard but not crazy and unorganized. Yet they lower yourself esteem and basically tell you they don’t care! Paying tons of money on things other schools provide for their students. Don’t apply here! Unless you want to waste money and time! Thinks will not get better heard it from other students “we got used to it”"

"Don’t do it. This is the most unprofessional and unorganized program. A community college have better programs. Professor and so old and unorganized they’re just bored in life and wants to make you your life miserable! Apply somewhere else!!! Too expensive, more than Texas A&M. They make you buy stuff so they can keep at the clinic, I wish someone warned me before applying"

"If I knew how bad this program is I would've went with Texas A&M. The first year was miserable lack of communication between staff and the clinic professor didn’t care about her students. She only added stress to our days. The clinical instructors had better communication and tried helping the students out. It sucks that we were stuck with the same professor for the first 2 clinic semesters. Senior year was much better. Over all stay away there are many other schools that offer better programs"
