    If I remember correctly, around 20% of dental school graduates to on to specialty training, and another 20% or so complete advanced training in general dentistry (GPR, AEGD, etc.). Don't quote me on the exact numbers, but I'd be very very surprised if 50% of new general dentists are going into formal post-doc training.
