Student Loans and Postgraduate Educational Debt

The ADA is working with lawmakers, education leaders, dental students, and others to help mitigate the alarming levels of educational debt that new dentists face after graduating dental school. This includes reforming parts of the Higher Education Act of 1965, which provides the statutory authority for most federal student loan programs to operate, including those most widely used by dental students.
