Re: dental school for braces- Good or Bad?
The school's reputation probably is important. I'm getting treated at Boston University dental school, which is a very good place. While it's annoying that it's only one appointment per month, and I have to travel far, the service is better than private practice for the same or even higher price.
See, they do everything by the book, and the technology is extremely up to date. Plus, while the actual people working on you are students, they are supervised by real dentists so you have nothing to worry about. In fact, I trust them far more than any private practice I've ever been to. They won't cheat you on the price either.
So yes, I would highly recommend dental schools IF it's a good one.
