I would emphatically urge anyone to seek DENTAL treatment anywhere but here! If you require a simple extraction, then I would say, "ok." However, 1 time I did need a lower molar removed & this tiny little... more student was unable to do it. This was not even a tooth way back - it was in an easy spot. Eventually I BEGGED for a different "student " - none were available. I then asked a teacher or supervisor for help. Ya, he came into the room & simply watched her fail over & over again. There is a nurse who has been there forever. She looks like a rough woman. In all the years I had been there, she showed me compassion for the 1st time and held my hand. Just over an hour later, the tooth was finally out. This place is absolutely horrible & they wrecked my entire mouth. I have 3 teeth left after only a few yrs. They botched EVERY SINGLE ROOT CANAL! The students are horrible. I once went to a new dem dentist & when I saw that she graduated from UCONN, I left b4 she ever touched me.
I do realize they are students, but I've been to hospitals in the back woods of NY State, and those kids KNOW what they're doing! UCONN =dental fail!
ER care is good, however the reason I scored it two stars is because the MDs are completely and entirely unresponsive when I make an online appointment. The online appointment service is absolutely worthless.... more TIP: Don't offer a service that is broken. It's unfair to your clients.
The ER is beautiful but aside from that I brought my friend in for a tooth ache. Admitting was very fast. DR. Emily was very sweet and took wonderful care of my friend. I would recommend Uconn over any... more hospital in central CT.
