Allied Health : Practice Issues and Trends in the New Millennium
Airmail from New York. Summary and Conclusions Overall our assessment is that only modest gains have been achieved in workforce goals of increased diversity, capacity and flexibility since the SGROH. In particular, the following trends and developments are discernible: A projected decrease in the overall dentist to population ratio with continued or aggravated mal-distribution of dentists, and high vacancy rates in safety-net systems.
Only modest gains in diversity of the dental workforce, despite national programs aimed at achieving this goal. The launching of 5 new dental schools — and potential opening of up to seven more - often affiliated with osteopathic medical schools - oriented to training public health-minded dentists in community-based settings. Increasing shortages of dental school faculty and continued low numbers of graduates seeking academic careers. New educational efforts to improve dental student and practitioner capacity to care for vulnerable populations and provide culturally sensitive care, with uncertain impact on children's oral health.
An increase in numbers of pediatric dentists and residency training capacity with an uncertain impact on access to care for underserved children and those with special needs. Numerous new community-based prevention and education programs, with difficult-to-quantify impact.
