"Overall i love the dental field and received enough training to get my feet wet in the office. Receiving my xray also helped me get a job quicker in the field. It was very hands on and had a great support system. I am thankful to the school and the future i have ahead"

"I enjoyed how they teach you hands on so that when you get into the office you know what you are doing. The book mainly gets you ready to take the RDA exam. It’s a well balanced program for people that want to get into Dental. I would recommend this program for anyone who wants to step their foot into Dental."

"The experience was good, school was wonderful, staff very welcoming, nice, and kind. There’s a lot of support from everyone there and great guidance. Only thing I wish would have been more of was more in depth of dental terminology and dental terms not just the basic going into the office helped me learn a lot more faster and pick up names better. Felt more consistent since here at school we only seen them a couple times and moved on to the next chapter in the lesson it was very fast."

"Alright, so this is my take I went to Garden Grove one, some of the staff was great but for me, it was too easy, after not even finishing a single module I dropped out and let them know I went to sign the paperwork and thought it was done, later I received a message like 4 days later after the other module started that they needed me to go back because they did their paperwork wrong so I went and they made me told me I needed to sign out the other date and put the new date so now it would be considered I dropped out after I finished one module, then my account was still being charged I was told I wasn't going to be charged since I didn't finish a single module. But they made me go back because they didn't do their job right. So I called financial aid they told me I had to pay a certain amount still as if I was still attending and then that I have a double account so they made two accounts for me under the same name and same bank number. So I asked them to delete one. A month later I was charged once again so I went to check out why I'm still being charged and how much I owe. I now not only owe money that I firstly shouldn't be charged for because I didn't finish a single module and lasted less than a month but I'm being charged double the amount in the beginning. I have called and the line says it's always busy I emailed them nothing and I read their contract that does not state anything that says I have a responsibility to pay them if I drop out. This seems like a scam at this point. as well as the tablets are so horrible you can barely do things on them they are so slow."

"So far so good , I barely graduated got hired right off the bat and I have 3 interviews lined up.Got my high school diploma here as well teachers were the best. My only complaint is that I didn’t learn much due to COVID-19 and when I did get back to school teachers were overwhelmed with students but they did the best they can"

"UEI equal debt and lies. Please dont go to this school, all they care about is MONEY!!! No guarante job after you finish the program, they dont give you time to find a job before they report your loan on your credit. Ghetto and unprofessional teachers, they need to shut this school down and stop taking people money. No expanded functions come with this over priced school and in the dental field they will like for you to have expanded functions but nope high a** UEL doesnt offer it. Run from this school"

"Okay so I was in the dental assistant program. I don't regret going to this school . I went to class everything . I love my teachers . The advisors is most definitely about their money . I do not care about your future . Just need you to enroll so they can get their check . I am a go getter so I did not depend on them to help me found a job . About a month left I had , I called people myself . I found a office did the internship for them , then I got hired on . Now I am getting myself prepared for my RDA license . This school can be okay if you just go out and find places yourself. Do not wait for them for nothing ! Also I still haven't received my diploma. I never went to graduation , because I feel like it was a joke . Just more money they want out your pocket . They son even give you the diploma that same day . I have a career now in the dental assistant career. So I am not worried about a sheet a paper . If you are a type of person that depends on other people to help you get something done , I wouldn't recommend this school . Just think if you went to a university you would have to do the same go out and find jobs yourself . They don't care about your future like you do !"

"Do Not Go To UEI. I went to this school in San Marcos. I graduated with a 3.74 GPA, all that hard work for nothing... Because I'm not making enough in the field I studied for, Dental Assisting, I tried going into the Army but I can't because I need an Official Transcript & they won't give it to me unless I pay off all of my student loan. STUPID! I want to defend my country & this school won't give me the opportunity"

"Don't waist your money here . this school is extremely expensive . I graduated and found my own job in my field they don't help and once I got in my field realized this school didn't prepare us for half of what we needed to know . They tell you your going to come out of school make a ton of money .You don't and these credits are not transferrable."

"Worst experience of my life at the fresno campus. It is ghetto,and the teachers are not professional. I was lied to about my payments when they knew I had no source of income. I still have not found a job and they suck at helping you. The extern site they sent me to was terrible and that place got shut down a week after I was done. And still no help with finding a job and they changed my career service person without even telling me so I've been contacting the wrong number the whole time. This place needs to get shut down. I want my money back and I will gladly be apart of anything having to do with suing them."

"This school lurs in people and promises a stable great, paying job that will better you for the future but instead all of it was a lie and I owe thousands with nothing to show for it. When I signed up tey told me that I would be making 12$ an hour to start and that I would be RDA certified to later find out that I could be making minimum wage and that I was not RDA certified only trained and I would have to pay over 200$ of my own money to take the RDA test and to rent the equipment I would need for the test (which to me is ridiculous because I'm paying a fortune already and my tution should be covering everything I need to succeed and because they toys me they would certify me) To be honest I'm not to sure how I graduated cuz I didn't get all my stuff done in time and the teacher forged her name to say I completed the course and because of that I'm not properly train in my field and which make it difficult for me to get a job because I was not certified correctly and I don't feel comfortable working in someones mouth. This school should be closed down and return my money."

"I am currently attending UEI College for a Dental Assisting Program. I do agree it is expensive, and I wish I would have been told there was a grace period to drop out; not because I don't like it there, but I may have chosen a different program. One of the reasons I chose this school over others is because I was told it was 8 months long... I started in December and will not be finished until SEPTEMBER (10 months), THEN I will have to do extern (170 hours). I had the idea that the 7 modules were each one month, then the 8th module (extern) was about 1 month (depending on how you utilize my time) As someone else has mentioned, they often run out of supplies and equipment is broken. I've recently finished my x-ray module and was unable to practice with digital x-rays because the machine has been broken the ENTIRE TIME! Digital x-rays are what are mainly used in the dental office. All whining aside, I've learned a lot here so far. And I enjoy both lecture and lab. I have a 4.0 and plan to hand in my student ambassador letter soon. I will write more once I have finished here."

"UEI College San Marcos, CA is an amazing school. To start off the staff, the first people I met were the admissions group which were amazing, they are such nice people who are very welcoming especially A. S> who is leader of the admissions team. Then the next people i met were the front desk people , Which also has a welcoming feel to it, this is school is a team everyone works together to help one another in everyway possible. The team has helped me in more ways than just one, it helped me mature, prioritize, and get ready to start my life on the right foot. they work with you to help fit YOUR needs and do what they can to help. The school is very clean and always smells fresh thanks to our maintenance man, he keeps the place sparkling clean at all times the school is in tip top shape. Another great thing is that if a student doesnt like something, or is uncomfortable our campus president is always here to lend an ear, its always said that this is OUR school, and they are here for us whenever its needed. I would most definitely recommend this school to anyone who asked."

"UEI college is probably the worst, if not the worst school ever! UEI college in Fresno has people working there who talk to their students like a piece of trash, rather than helping them. I would suggest if you are considering to attend a school like this think about it good before you regret wasting your money & time. I regret going there and I really try to prevent anybody experiencing what I did. UEI is a waist of time and half or even more of the people I had in my class don't have a job. Not because they didn't do we'll at school, or because there isn't none around them, but because the school SUCKS! And the people working there have no experience what so ever."

"I attended the San Diego campus and graduated as a dental assistant in summer 2010. I started in one of the morning classes and although the instructor was a really sweet lady she just couldnt handle the class. We had alot of 18-20yr olds and it wasnt really a mature enviorment. I later transfered to the night classes and the instructor there straight out did not care. Its a place where the instructors are more concerned with getting along with the student and getting a paycheck rather than actually teaching! The externship process was horrible! They took 3 weeks trying to place me in an office and finally I found my own place by calling around different offices. I got hired at my extern site once I had finished my hours and OMG was I in for a ride. Turns out they didnt actually teach us anything at all.. I was constantly lost and ended up learning everything from my co workers. Definately not worth the money Im still paying for school. If there is one piece of advice I can give you is DO NOT attend this so called school. Look for a different way to better yourself.. maybe thru community college or something else because this is just a waste of your time and money!"
