2013 Survey of Dental Fees Available on CPS

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.
