Marshfield dental school funding approved

The Assembly approved $10 million in bonding for a dental school in Marshfield that would focus on rural outreach.

The bill passed on a 51-47 vote.

The bonding is contingent upon Marshfield Clinic providing $10 million of non-state funding for the project by 2015, and it must be authorized by the state Building Commission.

Republicans complained that the bill didn't have a public hearing and the location of the clinic. Rep. Phil Montgomery, R-Ashwaubenon, said he doubted residents from his area or from Milwaukee will drive to the central Wisconsin city of Marshfield for dental care, and called the project "a big white elephant."

Opening a 2nd WI dental school will do nothing to solve the core problem. The core problem is that dentists can't make a living treating patients in the middle of nowhere who cannot pay the bill. Graduating more dentists just means WI will be paying to train more dentists to leave the state and work where they can make a good living. This problem will end only when we wake up and realize it's silly to expect someone to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars becoming a dentist and work for free. Take the money and use it for G.P.R. (general practice residency) or A.E.G.D. (advanced education in general dentistry) grants.
