A Fear of Change
Loving Change is a Pre-requisite for Survival
16
The time is ripe for dental educators as well as
the profession to think out of the box!
17
To preserve and strengthen their position within
the university, dental schools must ensure that
their contributions are genuine and visible to
their parent institutions.
18
Colleges in Crisis
There is a crisis in dental education that
threatens to destabilize the underpinnings of the
entire dental profession.
Business Week-OnlineApril 28, 2003
19
  • The public system of education is being
    squeezed as most state governments face the worst
    budget crises in 60 years

20
  • College costs are rising faster than any other
    major sector of the economy except health care.
  • Patrick Collan, President
  • National Center for
  • Public Policy and
  • Higher Education

21
In the absence of extraordinary financial
initiatives by states or the federal government,
or a massive outpouring of private donations from
industry and dentists there will be a continual
increase in the cost of education and student
debt
22
Last year, most dental schools were forced to
make drastic budget cuts. Dental schools
throughout the nation had their state budgets
reduced by as much as 30. Tuition increases were
the norm, with one state institution reporting an
increase of 50.
23
Universities have to recognize that public
funding for higher education as the dominant
source of support has come to the end of its
cycle. Public universities will have to look at
fund-raising, entrepreneurial ventures,
partnership agreements, and tuition fees to find
the money for their operating costs. C. D.
Mote, President University of
Maryland July 4, 2004
24
Links Between Education, Business and
Governmentare Common
25
Also, alliances between business or government
and institutions of higher
education are not uncommon
26
  • Those enrolled in the CVS Pharmacys
    scholarship program can receive monies to assist
    with their education in exchange for working for
    CVS
  • full-time as a
  • registered
  • pharmacist

27
  • In business, it is not unusual for a large
    corporation to pay tuition to a University so
    that their employees can attend the Universitys

    business school and obtain an MBA
    while the employees continue to
    work for the corporation

28
  • In dentistry, the National Health Service
    Corps, the Indian Health Service and the U.S.
    Armed Forces are examples of partnerships between
    education and government in which students
    receive scholarships stipends in exchange for a
    post-graduation practice commitment

29
  • Special care must be taken to insure
    accountability and a hands-off policy when any
    institution or association accepts money from
    private enterprise

30
Success will require collaboration, a will to
break down barriers of isolation and pooling of
resources for a common good. Such coalitions
must cross all boundaries and involve groups both
inside and outside the profession.
31
A New Business Partnership for the University of
Colorado School of Dentistry
32
A crisis looms. The number of new orthodontists
will surely decline. Within 10 years we will
experience a shortfall in the availability of
orthodontists. James Gjerset Past
President of AAO September 9, 2002
33
The University of Colorado School of Dentistry
has received a 3 million giftand a 92.7
million commitment to establish a long-term
business partnership with the Orthodontic
Education Company (OEC)
34
T
The gift partnership has enabled
the construction of a 30 million, 95,000
sq.ft. building, the Lazzara Center for Oral
Facial Health on the Fitzsimons campus to
house the School of Dentistry and
the new ortho- program
within the School without
taxpayer burden.
35
The program will enroll 16 orthodontic residents
each year in a 27 month program. There will be a
seven-year post-graduate commitment to work for
OEC for the 12 OEC scholarship residents
enrolled in the program each year.
36
The standards for accepting students will be no
different than any other orthodontic program in
the nation. The curriculum will be as rigorous
as others. The school will have total control of
the admissions standards and content of the
curriculum.
37
Demographic changes will raise the demands that
the dental workforce become more racially and
ethnically diverse and that dental care be more
culturally responsive?
38
How will the partnership help increase diversity
of the U.S. Health Care Workforce in
Orthodontics?
39
According to numbers from the Survey Center of
the American Dental Association, 9,294
orthodontists in the United States reported that
  • 170 (1.8) are Hispanic
  • 117 (1.25) are African American
  • 7 (.07) are Native American

In the Nations Compelling Interest- Ensuring
Diversity in the Health-Care WorkforceInstitute
of Medicine2004
41
Recommendation 3-4 Private entities should be
encouraged to collaborate through business
partnerships and other entrepreneurial
relationships with HPEIs to support the
common goal of developing a more
diverse health-care workforce.
42
One new model for education funding is through a
unique public-private partnership. The
University of Colorado Health Sciences School of
Dentistry has partnered with the Orthodontic
Education Company (OEC) to establish a new
dental center that they hope will address the
shortage of orthodontists and provide low
cost care to children in underserved areas.
43
As a result of scholarship opportunities, a
larger number of qualified graduating students
from diverse and economically disadvantaged
backgrounds will participate in specialty
training.

As dental educators we have to be willing to face

in a competitive world.
