Should include discussion of economics[edit]

This should include discussion of the economics of dentistry. The effect of licensing on availability and cost of services should be here. There should mention of the dentist-to-population ratio, and how it has changed over time, and the incomes of dentists. The wait time for care, and the number who forgo care due to cost should be here. Overall, the effects of licensed cartelization should not be ignored. Nicmart (talk) 18:03, 28 April 2009 (UTC)

NDEB does not oversee dentisty[edit]

The Natioanl Dental Examining Board does not oversee dentistry in Canada.

Rather, dentistry is regulated on a Provincial and Territorial level, by bodies known as "Dental Regulatory Authorities". These self-governing bodies are responsible for the licensure and regulation of dentists and dental specialists within their jurisdiction.

There is no federal certification either. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.50.224.236 (talk) 19:18, 23 January 2013 (UTC)
