Organized by: Vivian O'Hara

Brook is my student dentist at St Louis Education and Oral Health Clinic . My serious dental needs are in her hands. So comforting, gentle and caring l actually look forward to going!! I asked her if she will be strapped in debt. She said, you won't believe this, $450,000". I almost cryed for her. I could'nt stop worrying for her. I came up with donation jars or lock boxes at dentist offices to collect donations and spread the word of the exorbitant medical school costs however l don't have a car. No wonder we are short of dentists. The costs to start practice is incredibly high. On top of loans some bring home negative to $1500 a month. Googling why dental school costs so much was a PBS article. "The system is broke." Dental care is expensive! The poor are left untreated and now middle class families struggle or can't be treated. The health risks are devastating. Many dentists donate time to help underprivaledged. Just 10 years ago school tuition was half. No wonder students are not going into dentistry! Many wish they had not! Brook will graduate top of her class with choking debt. ANY HELP WILL TELL HER SHE IS IMPORTANT AND APPRECIATED!
