I live in a nice and large suburban area and it is saturated with dentists. I checked the profile of the dentists on their office website in light of the recent debate on NYU dental school tuition and loan issues. With my search, I found no NYU graduated dentists except very old timers or who only did specialization at NYU. It is weird and ironic because since NYU produces the highest number of dentists among all dental schools every year, so that it should be logical to expect finding relatively higher proportion of NYU dentists among the dental offices in any given area (* in general, statistically speaking). So I came to a conclusion that due to their amount of debt, most NYU dentists moved to rural or military upon conferral of their licensure and degree to pay off their debt. That is where you can find a job or higher income potential, or scholarship/loan forgiveness opportunity. Otherwise, they will declare bankruptcy and end up in prison for not paying off debt.
