Life Insurance and Your Dental Practice
There are many reasons to have life insurance at different times in your life. Upon graduating dental school, you may only need it if you are married, have children, or own a home. Some new Dentists start with the group policy from the ADA just to have minimal coverage if they do not have other reasons to own life insurance.
Life Insurance Myth: It costs too much. I can always buy it later. Maybe. Maybe not.
If you buy a dental practice you will likely need life insurance to cover the business loan debt. You may also have a partner or multiple partners and need to set up a buy-sell agreement and fund it with life insurance.
If your student loans are all still Federal Student Loans, then they are forgiven if you pass away. If you have student loans held privately then you will want to have some life insurance to pay them back if you pass away before they are paid off.

There are different kinds of life insurance and each has a different benefit and cost associated with it.
