There are top 10 lists for everything imaginable. You have the world’s top 10 most beautiful people, and the top 10 most fuel efficient cars. The lists go on and on. But what does the top ten really mean? Sometimes it means an organization that is in the business of ranking other businesses, collects a huge amount of data, crunches numbers, and comes out with a top ten list. Are these really the top ten? Well, maybe. It all depends on the criteria that are important to you.
Whenever a top 10 list is developed, you set the criteria that you will go by, to determine who gets on the list. In the case of schools, some criteria may be cost of tuition, number of students in a classroom, distinguished faculty members and a state-the-art facility for advanced learning. Another top 10 list may be compiled by students whose only criterion is; what schools has the best looking babes. Of course, this top 10 list wouldn’t be of much use to anybody, except maybe aficionados of the human female form.
Another situation with top 10 lists is; they may be very fleeting. They are like a game of musical chairs. You can be on the list today, and nowhere to be found, tomorrow. So, keep this in mind when perusing a top 10 list. With this in mind, we present the top 10 dental schools in us:
University of Pennsylvania, School of Dental Medicine (UPenn)
University of Maryland at Baltimore (UMB), Baltimore College of Dental Surgery
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC), School of Dentistry
University of Michigan, School of Dentistry
Harvard University, School of Dental Medicine (HSDM)
The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio (UTHSCSA) Dental School
University of California at San Francisco School of Dentistry
The University of Toronto, Faculty of Dentistry
University of Washington (UW), School of Dentistry
New York University College of Dentistry (NYU)
There will probably be students of dental schools not on this list, that feel their school should have definitely made this list, but this may be just a case of different criteria used for this particular list. Any decisions made on something as important as finding the right dental school, will need a lot more research than just reading a top 10 list.
Another top 10 list that is quite interesting is; the top 10 list of the easiest dental schools to get into. I have seen one list, and it lists at least one of the dental schools ranked in the top 10
