Dential Union? Half of Dentists Say ‘Yes!’

Dental unionIn this survey, we found that half of dentists are ready for the profession to unionize. Feeling trapped by dental insurance and abandoned by the American Dental Association, many dentists are ready for an organized dental union.

“The wimps running the dental societies certainly don’t help when it comes to the insurers,” complained one dentist.

What else did our dentists think about dentists unionizing?

  • “You have got to be kidding me. Ever heard of the ADA???” (Missouri prosthodontist)
  • “We should bring a class action lawsuit on those insurance companies!” (California dentist)
  • “What good would it do? Unionization would mean giving up each dentist’s independence. If a dentist doesn’t want to deal with insurance, he doesn’t have to. It’s entirely voluntary.” (California dentist)
  • “We can’t get more than 70% of dentists to join the ADA. How would you ever get them to join a union?” (Florida dentist)
  • “Insurance is God’s gift to dentistry! Without it, there would be a lot less dentistry getting done. Just call me a ‘dental insurance stooge.'” (Texas dental consultant)
  • “We have the ADA and they can’t get us national licensing. Why more socialism?” (New Jersey dentist)
  • “We should have unionized 20 years ago for collective bargaining purposes. We would then be on an equal footing with insurance companies. Maybe then I could legally discuss fees with colleagues?” (Florida orthodontist)
