The time is ripe for dental educators as well as the profession to think out of the box
The time is ripe for dental educators as well as the profession to think out of the box!


“To preserve and strengthen their position within the university, dental schools must ensure that their contributions are genuine and visible to their parent institutions.”


Colleges in crisis
Colleges in Crisis university, dental schools must ensure that their contributions are genuine and visible to their parent institutions.”

There is a crisis in dental education that threatens to destabilize the underpinnings of the entire dental profession.

Business Week-OnlineApril 28, 2003


The public system of education is being squeezed as most state governments face the worst budget crises in 60 years


“College costs are rising faster than any other major sector of the economy except health care.”

Patrick Collan, President

National Center for

Public Policy and

Higher Education


“In the absence of extraordinary financial initiatives by states or the federal government, or a massive outpouring of private donations from industry and dentists there will be a continual increase in the cost of education and student debt”


Last year, most dental schools were forced to make drastic budget cuts. Dental schools throughout the nation had their state budgets reduced by as much as 30%. Tuition increases were the norm, with one state institution reporting an increase of 50%.


“Universities have to recognize that public funding for higher education as the dominant source of support has come to the end of it’s cycle. Public universities will have to look at fund-raising, entrepreneurial ventures, partnership agreements, and tuition fees to find the money for their operating costs.”C. D. Mote, President University of Maryland July 4, 2004

In business, it is not unusual for a large corporation to pay tuition to a University so that their employees can attend the University’s business school and obtain an MBA while the employees continue to work for the corporation


In dentistry, the National Health Service Corps, the Indian Health Service and the U.S. Armed Forces are examples of partnerships between education and government in which students receive scholarships & stipends in exchange for a post-graduation practice commitment


Special care must be taken to insure accountability and a hands-off policy when any institution or association accepts money from private enterprise


“Success will require collaboration, a will to break down barriers of isolation and pooling of resources for a common good. Such coalitions must cross all boundaries and involve groups both inside and outside the profession.”



“A crisis looms. The number of new orthodontists will surely decline. Within 10 years we will experience a shortfall in the availability of orthodontists.” James Gjerset Past President of AAO September 9, 2002

Within 10 years we will experience a shortfall in the availability of orthodontists.” received a $3 million giftand a $92.7 million commitment to establish a long-term business partnership with the Orthodontic Education Company (OEC)

The program will enroll 16 orthodontic residents each year in a 27 month program. There will be a seven-year post-graduate commitment to work for OEC for the 12 OEC scholarship residents enrolled in the program each year.


The standards for accepting students will be no different than any other orthodontic program in the nation. The curriculum will be as rigorous as others. The school will have total control of the admissions standards and content of the curriculum.


Demographic changes will raise the demands that the dental workforce become more racially and ethnically diverse and that dental care be more culturally responsive?

  • 170 (1.8%) are Hispanic

  • 117 (1.25%) are African American

  • 7 (.07%) are Native American


In the Nation’s Compelling Interest- Ensuring Diversity in the Health-Care WorkforceInstitute of Medicine2004


Recommendation 3-4: Private entities should be encouraged to collaborate through business partnerships and other entrepreneurial relationships with HPEIs to support the common goal of developing a more diverse health-care workforce.


“One new model for education funding is through a unique public-private partnership. The University of Colorado Health Sciences School of Dentistry has partnered with the Orthodontic Education Company (OEC) to establish a new dental center that they hope will address the shortage of orthodontists and provide low cost care to children in underserved areas.”


“As a result of scholarship opportunities, a larger number of qualified graduating students from diverse and economically disadvantaged backgrounds will participate in specialty training.”
