Dental student debt in the U.S. A mountain to be scaled

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Dental student educational debt in the United States continues to grow as a concern for both dental educators and dental students. While certainly warranted this concern needs to be understood from the perspective of return on investment. The student debt issue remains a critical one. However this debt is essentially "good" debt when viewed as an investment made by associates/ employees of general dental practices and general dental practice owners.
