    Can you do a dual degree MPH program if selected for the NHSC scholarship?

    Hello, everyone! I know this cycle hasn't even opened yet, but a huge goal of mine is to be able to complete an MPH degree while a dental school. I'm interested in applying for this scholarship, but I would reconsider if they wouldn't allow me to do the dual degree in dental school.

    DMD/MBA

    For current dentists, do you think an MBA would have helped you out a lot? Do you wish to go back and do part time MBA? My current dental school is offering a dual degree of DMD/MBA. It will cost an extra $21,000. Since it is a private school the tuition is already on the high end for DMD. I...
