"One thing you will be happy to know is that UDM did a fantastic job with us. Myself and another UDM grad, who was in my residency often chat about this. We truly felt that we were the most prepared residents in our program in every aspect. We knew how to manage medically compromised patients and we had seen and learned things at UDM that gave us the confidence to do things others would shy away from. Our fellow residents/attendings would often tell us they could tell we had an excellent dental education."
