Each February, the American Dental Association (ADA) sponsors National Children's Dental Health Month to raise awareness about the importance of oral health. NCDHM messages and materials have reached millions of people in communities across the country. Originally beginning as a one-day event in Cleveland, Ohio, the event rapidly grew to a month long affair.

We understand how it’s not easy keeping children relaxed while in the dental chair. Fortunately, there are many inventive ways to try and relax children while in the practice; like pleasantly flavored prophy pastes and dental chairs shaped like dinosaurs. With the iStar™ Cordless Prophylaxis handpiece from StarDental®, you can use imaginative prophy angles sculpted to look like animals. The bright colors and recognizable animal patterns on the angles are designed to keep children calm in your practice, helping to give all your focus to the job at hand.
Buy an iStar™ now thru June 30th, 2016 and receive a box of Young Angles free! See the flyer for more details.

Whether you’re considering starting a new practice, opening a new office, or just researching the dental industry within the US, the ADA Health Policy Institute’s recent oral health care system analysis is an excellent resource for the entire dental industry. This tool offers a state-by-state overview of the oral health care system, providing general statistics such as dentist to population ratios, fluoridation rates, and dental care utilization for each of the 50 states.
Among some of the general findings you will see in the data, note that the overall number of dentists per capita in the United States has increased from 57.3 per 100,000 in 2001 to 60.5 in 2013. The ADA HPI notes that there is a significant variation across states, but as a whole this could be considered an indicator that the dental industry within the US is growing.
Another example of their findings come in the form of community water fluoridation rates, a statistic which tracks the percentage of Americans on a community water system that received fluoridated drinking water. The District of Columbia leads the way with 100%, with Hawaii at an 11% fluoridation rate.
The ADA HPI has also compiled some summary reports in the form of PDFs, and even offers data tables that compile all of the data used in the reports. The specific methods for collecting the data are also available for those who are curious.
This collection of data is a wonderful tool for anyone looking to obtain industry knowledge. Check out their findings here. If you would like to share your own thoughts and insights, comment below.
