Most health science schools are formed in response to a need. Utah is over
populated with dentists and more of any specialty, dentists, doctors,
chiropractors, accountants, TV repairmen, lawyers, etc usually results in them
compensating in some, not always good, way for their increased competition. With
the demonstrated shortage of physicians in Utah, it is unfortunate that the
state has not met this need first. Building a dental school because your
received a grant is not good or sufficient reason.
