Workforce model report available
The ADA Health Policy Resources Center released the 2011 ADA Dental Workforce Model: 2009-2030.
The Dental Workforce Model provides a long-term projection of the U.S. dental workforce using statistical transition models for retirements, occupation change, location choice, specialty education and death. The report provides national projections of the number of dentists (professionally active dentists and active private practitioners), applicants to dental school, first-year dental school enrollments and dental school graduates up to the year 2030.

The cost of the report is $80 for ADA members, $120 for nonmember dentists and $240 for commercial firms, plus shipping and handling.
