As dentistry changes, practitioners must adapt
Sacramento Bee
America's dentists are stuck with a major, nagging toothache: Not enough people are going to the dentist; those who do don’t spend much. A combination of factors are reshaping the dentistry mold.

Or bringing in specialists as independent contractors, so that fewer patients have to be referred elsewhere for treatments.
