hey guys, Being an undergrad recently accepted to dental school, I am trying to get a grasp of how my profession will be by the time that I am ready to practice. The country is going into recession, I think that is agreed. I have always considered dentistry to be a very lucrative field. However, recent posts on here and discussions with family friends have got me worried. I saw a thread on here discussing how getting a job out of dental school in California is near impossible. In specific areas of the country, dental practices are closing. Having a few friends in the Pittsburgh area, they are saying that the job market for dentists is not what it used to be. I am aware that the population of the country is getting older and that a good number of dentists are expected to retire in the near future, but I can't help worry about my job security. If this country were to go into a drastic recession, in 4 or 5 years, will dentistry be as nice as it is now? I am asking this not as a perspective pre-dental student, but rather as someone who will be attending dental school next year, and unless I make bad decisions in dental school, will be a dentist in a few years. Any thoughts or opinions would help. Thanks.
