COVID-19 Economic Impact on Dental Practices

The ADA Health Policy Institute issued a regular poll of U.S. dentists concerning economic conditions during the COVID-19 pandemic. The panel, conducted March 2020 to December 2021, quantified how the pandemic shaped dentists' delivery of care, financial sustainability, and overall attitude toward their profession. HPI will now measure these issues under the new Economic Outlook and Emerging Issues in Dentistry panel. See this page for archived reports.
