The problem comes when the dentist sees you more like dollar sign than on the patient.
Regardless of their degree, dentists are running a business.
Used to be that a dental school graduate would start as a junior dentist any private practice.
From these entry-level positions, they worked until taking over the practice when the senior dentist retired.
With the retirement age of dentist getting older, it is harder and harder for you for younger dentists to make enough money to pay college loans.
