  • The 2018 Survey of Dental Fees sample was selected from the ADA’s national sampling frame of active private practitioners, which includes member and non-member dentists. The survey, representing 11.2% of the population, was a simple random probability sample of 15,000 dentists in private practice, of whom approximately 60% were general practitioners and 40% were specialists.

Please note the survey data should not be interpreted in any way as constituting a fee schedule, and should not be used for that purpose.
