Thousands of dentists and specialists took part in the dental profession's most important annual checkup: The Dental Economics/Levin Group Annual Research Report.

Every year, Dental Economics partners with Levin Group to survey thousands of dentists and publish a comprehensive report on the state of the profession. This information enables dentists and other dental professionals to see where they stand among their peers and identify the trends that are reshaping the future of dentistry.

Look for the November issue of Dental Economics for this year's survey and report. You can see previous years' results here.
