Data Driven Dentistry 2021: A Summary

January 11, 2021
by Oral Health

Oral Health is excited to share a first look at part four of our Data Driven Dentistry series! Following the success of our first three comprehensive surveys and the valuable results that were found from surveying both patients and dentists, we have chosen to survey Canadian dentists once again. This time, we have collected data with a focus on surviving and thriving during the COVID-19 pandemic. We will share the results through the year to help you gain perspective on how your peers have been coping during the pandemic and what dentistry will look like once it has passed. We hope this research will assist you in making decisions to ensure a successful practice. The stats on this page are a brief glance into what we plan to elaborate on within the pages of Oral Health. Be sure to follow us on social media and visit our webpage that features web articles, infographics and videos. Oral Health wants you to be involved!


As seen in the print issue of Oral Health January 2021

*In late October and early November, 2020, Bramm Research, a third-party independent research house, conducted an online survey of active, practicing non-hospital affiliated dentists and dental specialists on behalf of Oral Health. Using Oral Health’s subscription list, a total of 407 completed surveys were tabulated. With a total sample of 407, the margin of error is plus or minus 4.7 percentage points at the 95 percent confidence level. If, for example, 50% of the sample indicated that agreed with a statement, then we can be reasonably sure (19 times out of 20) of an accuracy within +/- 4.7%. This means that a total census would reveal an answer of not less than 45.3% and not more than 54.7%.
