The authors examined the relationship between education debt and career choice, particularly dentists’ decisions to specialize, participate in public health insurance programs, and join dental management service organizations (DMSOs). The authors used data from the American Dental Association 2015 office database, which contains dentist demographic information and identifies dentists who participate in public health insurance programs for pediatric dental care services. The authors merged this database with the 2002-2015 American Dental Association Survey of Dental Graduates, which contains information about education debt, to assess the relationship between education debt and career choices. The authors used probit and multinomial logit models to determine the relationships among education debt, demographic characteristics, and dentist career choices.
