ADA Accepting Applications for Investigators in Dental Informatics Award Applications due Feb. 1, 2015
The American Dental Association (ADA) is accepting applications for the 2015 Robert H. Ahlstrom New Investigator Award, created to encourage interest in dental informatics standards among dental students, new dentists and dentists pursuing post-doctoral studies. Applications are due Feb. 1, 2015, and a winner will be selected in May 2015.
The 2013 Survey of Dental Fees, covering information collected last year from 2,198 responding dentists, is now available on ADA's Center for Professional Success website and free to all ADA members. The report includes the national average fees for more than 200 commonly performed procedures, broken down for both general practitioners and each of the six specialties. General practitioner's information is further divided into nine regional areas.
This survey data is not a fee schedule and should not be used for that purpose, but it does provide extremely valuable information.
The new ADA.org, along with a new suite of professional websites including ADA2014, ADA Store (Aptify), ADA Foundation, ADA Center for Evidence-Based Dentistry and ADA Business Resources, went live on April 30 and are a culmination of more than a year of research and development.
