There's research and predictions that dentistry will break apart. The more research that is done the more it seems to be hurting dentistry. Pretty soon dental hygienist will have their own practice, soon after the dental caries vaccine is developed. Physicians will be able to get the vaccine to people and less people will go to the dentist. Dental hygienist will end up making more money than before, since dentist take a huge profit from dental hygienist. So the future of dentistry doesn't look strong and I am not too happy.
