Gov. Richardson and Sen. Jeff Bingaman made a joint appearance this week to push the idea of a dental school for the state.
That seems uncontroversial enough.
They announded that New Mexico has a shortage of dentists and state officials plan to study whether it’s feasible to establish a dental school to provide more dental care professionals.
The men said that the study will look at the costs of establishing and operating a dental school as well as where it should be located.
