    "Students ante up about $80,000 per year for the education." Times that by 4 and you get $320,000. I hope they really meant to say $80,000 total for all four years. If it really is 320K you would have to be insane to take on that kind of debt load no matter how bad you wanted to be a dentist.

    Rock of the Marne,
    They meant 80,000 a year. 200k-300k in debt is very normal these days for people attending medical or dental school.

    $80k tuition per year ain't much if you make $300k per year when you practice dentistry.

    Now we need to expand the Medical School and get more Doctors out there since they are in an even higher demand.

    80K per year? If that is correct you would have to be a fool to attend. I attended one of the more expensive dental schools and paid 40K/year. When you factor in living expenses, the costs can really build fast.
    It must be 80k for the 4 years as it is an extension of a state school. 80K is simply undoable. Take it from a guy making 150K and paying away half of it to loans.
    80 K is ridiculous if true, and believe me...NOT worth it.
