Many dentists would approve of gender profiling at dental schools – that is, of favoring male dental student applicants under the theory that will, statistically, more work total hours over the course of their careers. But the slight majority oppose giving preference based on gender.
“Live with it, people,” declared a male orthodontist. “Discrimination in any form is un-American.”
“I’m a little surprised that this topic has come into the open view, but it is undeniable,” offered another dentist. “The profession is losing manpower hours at a time when there’s a call to serve more people.”
