National and Indiana dental workforce trends: IUSD DDS enrollment shaping.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The IU School of Dentistry remains committed to serving its statewide mission to educate highly qualified individuals in preparation for the independent practice of dentistry. National dental workforce analyses indicate a stable number or slight decline in the number of dentists to 2025. Previous Indiana data indicate that 29 percent of nonresidents remain in the state following graduation. We believe our analysis strongly supports a need for DDS enrollment expansion consistent with the IUPUI Enrollment Shaping strategy if we are to achieve our goal of garnering new financial resources to construct a new dental building.
