Letters: Dental spending

November 17, 2014 Perhaps somebody can help explain something to me.  If the increase in dental spending was only 1.9 percent in 2013, which is well below the 3 percent rate of inflation; if the dental market has been contracting steadily since 2006; if dental incomes have steadily decreased since 2006; if the amount of student debt continues to increase to ever more exorbitant levels; and if slower dental growth is projected through 2023, why are we building more dental schools and graduating more dentists each and every year?
