About the Event
This is a Member Dentist-only Event.
Each Member must register separately to attend and receive credit.
On March 23, the ADA Health Policy Institute initiated a bi-weekly poll to quantify the magnitude of the pandemic's impact on dental practices over time and make projections of how COVID-19 will impact the U.S. dental economy in the near future. This session will explore trends drawn from this detailed tracking poll which is broken down by age, type of practice, state, and more. It will explore how COVID-19 is impacting dental practices, affecting consumer attitudes toward visiting the dentist, and what long-term impacts the pandemic might have. Dr. Fosse will discuss both Tennessee-specific and national trends.
