An Analysis of Dental Manpower and Education in Illinois.
Dei Rossi, J. A.; And Others
This report presents the results of the implementation in the State of Illinois of a methodology for analyzing the relationships between health education and health manpower supply, and the relationship between supply and service, specifically in the field of dentistry. The major findings show that: (1) in analysis of the geographic distribution, there is a significant variation in the distribution of dentists relevant to the population; (2) increasing the productivity of dentists is a potentially powerful way to increase service availability; (3) the number of full-time equivalent dentists per 100,000 will increase gradually and slightly by 1980; and (4) the growth of dental manpower supply in the state will only keep pace with population growth despite significant planned increases in dental manpower training.
