Shepherd, Kathi R.; Nihill, Patricia; Botto, Ronald W.; McCarthy, Melanie W.
Journal of Dental Education, v65 n9 p841-48 Sep 2001
Surveyed new dental educators about their perceptions regarding salary, work environment, and workload to determine these factors' impact on recruitment and retention. Found that work environment was most important. Several other factors, such as educational resources, facilities, salary, benefits, mentoring, startup funds for research, and external private practice opportunities, were also moderately important for considering or maintaining a position.
