Patient Debt Management and Student Academic Progress.
Cameron, Cheryl A.; Olswang, Steven G.
Journal of Dental Education, v53 n10 p569-72 Oct 1989
A survey of patient debt management policies of dental programs is reported. The translation of a student's successful performance in a clinic setting to an academic failure based on a patient's failure to pay for services is not legally defendable. Fee collection should not be tied to student academic progress. (Author/MLW)
