We urge the North Carolina Dental Society to take a strong position opposing the fiscally irresponsible concept of building a second state supported dental school in North Carolina. We charge the North Carolina Dental Society to represent the profession of dentistry as its organized political voice in matters pertaining to oral health as follows:
1) Determine the real manpower (dentists) needed to address the demand for dental services throughout the state of North Carolina and educate lawmakers concerning the public health
This petition has been started by Dentists for Fiscal Responsibility. Across the state dentists have been asking for a way to show the dental society leadership that widespread opposition to a second state supported dental school is being ignored. These dentists know that there is an easier and cheaper way to be sure the demand for dental care is met. These dentists believe the misinformation being promoted by those in favor of a second school is fleecing the taxpayers.
