I don't understand...There are repayment programs (I know for med, I assume for dental). If you REALLY want to join the military, they will pay back a certain $$ per year. (Note--this may be going up in the near future to around 60K/yr I think, read the stipend thread)

  1. Attending Physician
There is the Health Professions Loan Repayment Program (will pay back ~ 90K after taxes under current funding levels) and there is language in the new authorization act for accession bonuses for dentists. (we will have to wait and see on that)
