Dentists: 3 of 4 Say There’s No Shortage of Dentists

Dentist shortage? many areas are over-servedDentists certainly aren’t worried about any impending “shortage of dentists.” Three out of four in this survey feel their areas are over-served, as did every single urban dentist who responded.

“There is absolutely no shortage of dentists,” declared one dentist.

Here are some other comments from doctors:

  • “If I were younger I would open up in a rural area. Competition in NYC is tough.” (Urban dentist)
  • “We are oversaturated in the suburb of the large city I live and work. Travel about 20 miles away from this suburb into the rural countryside, and those areas are underserved.” (Ohio prosthodontist)
  • “Not only overserved, but more new dental practices than patients are moving into the area.” (Suburban Illinois dentist)
  • “Over-marketed also.” (Suburban Pennsylvania dentist)
  • “Shut down more dental schools!” (Suburban dentist)
  • “When I moved into this town, the population was about 26,000 and there were nine dentists. Today, the population is about 55,000 and there are sixty-three dentists in the phone book. So the population has about doubled, but the number of dentists has grown seven-fold!” (Suburban California dentist)
