“We DO NOT Need a 4th Dental School in Texas” Petition

-According to a 2012 Report by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board “Texas does not need another dental school at this time”.

-Since 2005 the population of Texas needed to increase by 27 million in order to absorb the number of new dental licensees during that same period.  This is from data obtained from the Texas State Board of Dental Examiners.

-Despite a fiscally tight 2017 Texas budget a 4th Dental School in El Paso was included.

-There exists a maldistribution of dentists which could be better addressed by loan forgiveness for current dental students.
