Letters: Dr. Schultz My View

March 29, 2019 As a practicing dentist for 34 years, I suspect Dr. Schultz and I are becoming dinosaurs (“It’s A Good Life,” March 4 ADA News).

I hope I’m wrong. My favorite M.D.’s, regardless of age, are the ones who create connection with me beyond my stats. But, that seems less and less common with younger physicians and dentists.

Technology, insurance, dental service organizations and debt from school loans make it difficult for new dentists to acquire a practice like ours and continue in the same manner. It has been a good life.

I just hope the evolution in this business leads to improvements that I don’t yet see.
