  • DONT GO HERE!!! VCC accepted me and i decided to go here because they have more frequent intake. DON’T DO WITH I DID. School decided to move to new location in middle of the year. Had to go to school 6 days a week because of that. School days were super long from 7:15-7pm to accommadate their move…Many studemts got screwed over and didn’t graduate on time because they didn’t have enough time to finish clinic or study after schoop. My gpa for that semester dropped because of this stupid arrangement. Lots of unexpected expense!!!! Beware that you will have to spend extra for specific colored socks, pants specific color and length, under shirts or even Panties in certain color. Yes you heard me right. They told us that we need to purchased nude color PANTIES. More purchases for stupid clinic tags to check out instruments and plastic box to store instruments. Only a less than a hand full of instructors are good. I feel bad for them. They deserve to teach at a better school. Graduation party was a joke!!!!! They charged us $400 to hold it in the school’s lunch room. My elementary school graduation was 100x better than that. I don’t know anyone in school who loves being there. Everyone hates it. Just a matter of the extent. Tutuition is $36000+. They don’t provide you loupes. Prepare to spend $1500-2500 on them depending on which ones you pick. Clinic instructors all grade you differently. One day you are told that you’re doing Great, next day you failed everything and was told something completely opposite. Staffs have super high turn over rate. They r cheap to the staffs. Receptionists and CDAs hate it there too. We saw staff stormed out from school once and never came back. Clinic was left with no staff. Student had to figure things out themselves. Clinic runs out of alcohol, sterilization wraps, infection wipes, gloves, masks all the time. They figured that the students must be wasteful of stuff so they limited us on boxes of gloves, masks, biomaterial materials you can use until you graduate. ****. I don’t like to complain. I just wanted to graduate on time and not cause any trouble. But this school pushes everyone’s limit. AVOID AT ALL TIMESSSSSSSSSSSS. RUN AWAY FROM THIS PLACE.

  • In the old school the internet was complete shit. Now, in the new school, and still the internet is ass. This school is a joke.

  • This school is a joke ! i did the local anaesthetic course here over 2 weekend and failed because i apparently didn’t do a second aspiration on the palate injection. This is very subjective as i know that i didn’t forget that. Instructors were terrible and made you feel like shit. When i called the school to discuss why i failed the main instructor seemed defensive and rude when i asked about why i failed. Would never recommend this school to anyone.

  • I can write a book about this school. First of all, after 10 years, the owners decide to move the school from a barely decent place to a bowling alley in a shady neighborhood
    (great choice!), why didn’t you just build us a new building from scratch like the Toronto school?. Second, the owners try to care about the students, but mainly they care about their pockets. Thirdly, whoever runs the school, keeps on BS’ing to the students how perfect everything is. Lastly, if you want to pay 40k for a bowling alley, come on in! and RIP.

  • This school is a JOKE. A SICK, SICK, SICK, JOKE. The owners just want your money, they don’t care who you are or how you’re doing, they will find every possible way to rob you. There are only a few instructors that actually care and will do their best to help you succeed, but even that is difficult for them as they are employed under the senseless owners. If I could choose again, I’d rather spend an extra 6 months at VCC and even pay more money than to give this school a dime. I’m not even exaggerating.

    Overall Score: (1.54/5.00)
  • you have no human rights at this school. the coordinator, instructors and owners do not care about the students. only a few instructors really help students out. so much corruption within the staff and all the school wants is your money. for tutoring, or extra help, for credits, or clinics. this school is nothing.

  • Tuition fee is $40,000 per student but the school won’t even use some of that money to get their wifi fixed. I get a better wifi connection in the middle of a forest!!! Plus there are only a couple plug ins in the rooms so students crowd around the back of the room to charge their laptops.

  • Never in my life have I felt less of a human being. I’m honestly the most depressed I’ve been in my life being in this place. I just wish I had found this website before even applying here. I wouldn’t consider this place a “school” because what instructors would want their students to fail instead of succeed??? This is exactly what this “school” is about. All the bad comments are true. This place is a trap, STAY AWAY!

  • Whoever runs this fake website is a fucking idiot. I have friends who have graduated from VCDH and wrote great reviews that you wouldn’t publish. Not to mention your reply to the person who asked if there was a waiting period on the review was something along the lines of “LOL get fucked”. Mrs. Antosh has way better things to do then come onto this shit and comment. I’m so sorry that you are butt hurt about your experience. You probably had no friends and got held back. VCDH is a great school. End rant.

  • The review written on Jan 11th 2016 is a complete lie and was actually written by the program coordinator. The school is a joke plain and simple. Firstly it’s a dump. The carpet is stained with God knows what, the windows have bars like we are being help captive like zoo animals and the majority of the intructors are as miserable being there as we are that they can’t even reply back to us when we try and say hello in the hallways. Don’t waste your time or money at this institution you will regret it tremendously. The receptionist is horrendous and that’s the the beginning of your warm welcome into hell. Don’t I repeat DONT go here. You won’t graduate on time, the instructors(except maybe 2) treat you like you area piece of dirt under their shoe and you won’t have a healthy experience.

  • “People think if they pay the tuition they are entitled to pass without working hard” can’t count the number of times I have heard this during my time at this school.. must be from a staff member. All the other reviews are true. Stay away.

  • Anyone who has actually graduated from this college has had great reviews. The staff and instructors are tough but very nice and try to help as much as possible . The equipment is much better than any other colleges and there are many extra free ways to get extra help . This is a tough program and not everyone can pass . People think that if they pay the tuition they are entitled to pass without working hard and when they are released from the program they blame the college with the bad reviews below instead taking accountability for their failure.

    Overall Score: (0/5.00)
  • There are only a few good teachers that actually know how to teach. The faulty are very rude and do not care about anyone. This place is run down and students are crammed into the smallest classrooms ever. This school is all about money for every little thing. Stay away if you don’t want to waste your money!!!!!

    ==

    DO not waste your time or money with this school. Attend a public dental hygiene program, were the instructors are fully qualified, and don’t just have Diplomas.

  • If you wish to be treated as less than a human being, this is the school for you! I can’t get over how rude and unprofessional certain instructors are. In the morning I will pass them in the hallways and say “Good morning, How are you?” and I am greeted with a fowl face and a simple grunt… The program director has the emotional intelligence of a stone and clearly does not care about the students as she has actually stated to us before. She consistently speaks badly about other students and then preaches to us about professionalism. If you also like being treated like you are in kindergarten, constantly being monitored, and talked down to, you will love this school. The woman who works in the sterilization department is a complete bag who screams at the top of her lungs at whoever is passing by and gets away with it. I have asked her several times to speak to me like I am a human being and give me the same respect I show her… ya not going to happen in this lifetime. The extremely unfortunate thing is that the instructors don’t do anything about it either and say it’s just in her nature. If it was in one of the students “nature” to be rude do you think they would get away with it? No. A monkey could do her job and she is easily replaceable, why they haven’t replaced her by now I will never understand. The reviews below are absolutely true. If you have a strong accent there are some teachers who will just get fed up and angry with you because they can’t understand you and definitely do not stand up for yourself. I only wish more people would come on here and read the reviews before spending $40,000 to be treated like dirt.

  • If you stand up for yourself you are in big trouble . If u are a teacher’s pet you are good to go.if you tell on people, you get rewarded.
    If you are not white, do not choose hygiene a s a profession. It is a friendly advise based of the experience, it does not matter how good you are, how smart you are, you are not white.

    Overall Score: (1.54/5.00)
  • This school is very pricey and favoritism plays a huge role in your sucess in the program. For thoes that enjoy sucking up to instructors this is the school for you. Most of the instructors are power trippers and enjoy diciplining the students for minor reasons. You pay a huge price for the program and are continually reminded that you have no rights or reason to complain.
    Overall, having graduated from this school my education and knowledge is up to par. However, getting to this point has been very mentally draining.

    Overall Score: (1.72/5.00)
  • PROS: Great school, great instructors.

    CONS: Tuition fee is pricy. Reception staff is the worse ever!!!
