The American Dental Association (ADA) Health Policy Institute (HPI) released its inaugural Annual Dental Industry Report. According to a press release from the association, the report distills findings from HPI data collections to provide insight into the state of the dental industry and market trends, as well as future forecasts.

“The dental industry has entered a ‘new normal’ that is characterized by a growing number of dentists, shifting practice configurations and an evolving patient landscape,” said Marko Vujicic, PhD, chief economist and vice president of HPI, in the report’s executive summary.

Key topics covered in the report include dental workforce, dental spending, reimbursement rates, shifts in preventative and diagnostic dental procedures, and case studies on shifting consumer behavior.

The annual report is an offering from HPI’s new HPI Consulting Services, which provides clients with customized industry research and speaking engagements targeting the dental industry.

The report is available for purchase at the ADA Store online.
