Business course is vital

Oct. 1, 1998
The Editor`s Note in the June 1998 issue hit a responsive chord. Dr. Joe Blaes has said what should have been said long ago. It comes late, but at least it comes. "The Learning of Business" sets out the challenge to the dental schools to fill this void in the dental-education curriculum.

The Editor`s Note in the June 1998 issue hit a responsive chord. Dr. Joe Blaes has said what should have been said long ago. It comes late, but at least it comes. "The Learning of Business" sets out the challenge to the dental schools to fill this void in the dental-education curriculum.

Dental students graduating today are ill-prepared to face the real world. They may be well-prepared to practice the art of the profession, but they must establish themselves first, and therein lies the rub. Dr. Blaes explains in more detail this problem that needs to be corrected. Business should be considered a normal and a required course in every dental school. To do less is to send out the graduates unprepared.
