ADA 4th economic confidence survey available

According to the 4th ADA Survey of Economic Confidence, 2nd quarter results were more negative than those of the 1st quarter of 2009, but more positive than those for the 4th quarter of 2009.

Findings show dentists are more confident in future economic conditions. The percent reporting that they are either "somewhat confident" or "very confident" increased by almost 15 percentage points between the 4th quarter 2008 and 2nd quarter 2009.

Conducted by the ADA Health Policy Resources Center July 6-15, the quarterly Internet survey drew responses from 1,275 dentists. A detailed report of the survey findings will be featured in the Aug. 17 issue of ADA News.
