A recent survey of American adults found that 1 in 4 did not purchase needed dental care last year, because they couldn’t afford this service. Dentistry was, amongst all healthcare services, the least affordable (see chart).
And this was when the American dental waiting rooms have never been emptier, and dental incomes at their lowest levels since 2006.
So what is going on? There are several explanations but let me put forth my perspective:
This issue is a BIG issue — perhaps the biggest for the future of the dental team. Failure to address affordability means the dental team will serve a shrinking part of the community, and waiting rooms will continue to empty.
