    Most health science schools are formed in response to a need. Utah is over populated with dentists and more of any specialty, dentists, doctors, chiropractors, accountants, TV repairmen, lawyers, etc usually results in them compensating in some, not always good, way for their increased competition. With the demonstrated shortage of physicians in Utah, it is unfortunate that the state has not met this need first. Building a dental school because your received a grant is not good or sufficient reason.
