Australia may have a good problem on its hands.
An influx of dentists has forced the Australian Dental Association to recommend to the government to begin to limit the number of dental students. If that is not done, there will be too many qualified dentists in the near future.
So far, the Australian Dental Association has requested a temporary freeze on international students getting dental degrees in Australia. The number of dental schools in the country has doubled in the last nine years. An increase in the number of international students, combined with a rise of skilled workers, has also exacerbated the problem.
