Are you starting to worry about how you're going to pay for your dental school education? One of the biggest concerns that we hear consistently from dental students is getting out from under their debt burden when they finish school.
Many people already have previous schooling debt from their undergraduate programs and are looking for recommendations for reducing the burden of dental student loan debt. The good news is that there are plenty of small adjustments that dental students can make to reassess how they manage their student loan debt.
Financial wellness is an important goal as you transition from dental school into the dental profession. Loan debt can be a strong hindrance, but there are many ways to manage it. You can take certain steps both now and post-graduation to understand your overall credit health and to maximize your earning potential.
In this recent NEXTDDS webinar, students learned many of these key points including:
- Recommendations for protecting your credit / credit health as a dental student
- Understanding debt and compounding interest
- Reviewing available repayment options
- Differentiating between the “big 3”: educational debt, practice acquisition debt, and home ownership debt
