Does New Hampshire face a pending dentist shortage?

from New Hampshire Business Review

In just three years, states like Vermont, Maine and Arizona will have more dentists retiring than graduating from schools to replace them. New Hampshire also has issues regarding access to primary dental care in parts of the state, but whether a shortage is on the horizon is unclear. But with the increasing emphasis placed on oral health as an integral part of overall health, the issue has become all the more critical to address. "Across the country, the number of dentists per 1,000 population is the lowest it's been in 100 years," said Tom Raffio, chief executive of Northeast Delta Dental, a dental insurance company in Concord. "In 2013, more dentists will be retiring than graduating. This will peak in 2023, with a net loss of 1,706 dentists nationwide, and it doesn't correct until 2030." more
