Robert Wartell: The real economics of midlevel providers
As a dentist who has cared deeply about dental public health since the 1960s, I am compelled to write about mid-level dental providers. These are people without the eight years of education after high school that are required to become a dentist, but who still are allowed by law to do extractions and fillings and give anesthetic injections, among other procedures. They would be able to do these procedures after about 18 months or two years of training post-high school.
