What’s driving the demand for dentists? Dental schools are graduating fewer dentists than in years past, while the U.S. population continues to grow, according to a recent white paper by Staff Care, Trend: The Growing Use of Locum Tenens Dentists. The maldistribution of dental providers is also an issue, with nearly 4,100 geographic areas designated as dental healthcare provider shortage areas (HPSAs) by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
