Dentists Express Concern About Economic Recovery in Survey

Dentists Express Concern About Economic Recovery in SurveyA survey of dentists reveals that 65% do not believe that an economic recovery is on the horizon, feeling that the chances of recovery went away after Obama was reelected.

The dentists expressed concern about the U.S. debt and current deficit financing, wrote one dentist, “Any ‘recovery’ in the next three or four years will be temporary, as the entire economy is now completely dependent upon debt and unsustainable deficit financing. The combination of the current expansion of the money supply (money printing) with the increase in debt will ultimately result in runaway inflation and massive lender losses of purchasing value. Workers will be taxed heavily and retirees will see a cut to their benefits, resulting in less spending and a declining economy.”

This week, in Ben Bernanke’s latest speech on the state of the economy, he emphasized cooperation and creativity to deliver fiscal clarity–in particular, a plan for resolving the nation’s longer-term budgetary issues without harming the recovery–could help make the new year a very good one for the American economy.

29% of the dentist respondents to The Wealthy Dentist economic survey believe that perhaps they are seeing an economic recovery on the horizon, while 4% believe that an economic recovery is already here. 2% think a recovery is coming soon.

“Recovery is here but it is slow and not very energetic. We should be glad our recovery is growing and not declining into recession like most of the world!” responded an Illinois dentist.

The generally negative tone of the survey responses do not mean that dentists have not seen success at their dental practice.

Wrote a Ohio dentist, “Thankfully, our practice is increasing in new patient numbers and gross and net income even in these generally poor economic times. We’ve made many positive changes in our office that have caused this to happen even during these tough times. We also track and study just about everything our office does, including dental marketing. Sadly, though, I don’t see any economic recovery for the nation and many parts of the world anytime soon.”

Here are some more of the dentists’ comments on the economy —

“Probably will get worse as insurance fees for dentistry rise and more and more people drop coverage to save money.” (Kentucky dentist)

“Everyone can’t get ‘freebies’ from the govt forever just wish Washington was smart enough to realize it.” (Florida dentist)

“I believe that the new taxes and fees that are necessary to fund ACA will kill any economic growth. Government has too much input into what we can and cannot do.” (Oregon dentist)

“We are a deteriorating nation, the riots in Greece are a fraction of what will happen here when we can’t give all the free stuff away.” (Minnesota dentist)

“Until congress makes some decisions, the uncertainty will kill any recovery. All the tax increases from Obamacare will cause more unemployment at least for awhile.” (Texas dentist)

    I think dentists are extremely greedy.

  • Mike

    Yes, dentists are greedy.  They should want to work for free after spending 8+ years in school.  How dare they have any desire to pay their debt, maybe they should just go on welfare and stay home.  Everyone knows if you expect to get paid for work you are a d-bag money grubber.  Nobody should take home 10-20% of what they produce, that’s just rediculous – and their employees, don’t even get me started there.  How dare they expect money for their work?!  Maybe we should all move to Canada or France where in their utopian society there is no financial burdens because everything is free.  Joey, thank you for saying what the world has been thinking all these years – someone had to put it out there.

    You know…we put our all into our practices and now have to be prostitutes to the pimps of goverment…When does it end?…There will be less people going into dental/medical practice as the motivation to go thru the regimen to achieve your degree becoming less motivating financially. Higher taxes and lesser fee structures! . I don’t see lawyers, who rule the political roost lowering their fee schedule due to government interference
