AAID releases comprehensive implant dentistry benchmarking study

by Dental Tribune America

The American Academy of Implant Dentistry recently announced the release of the first benchmarking study for the implant dentistry practice in the United States. This comprehensive resource provides dental professionals with critical information and statistics about the implant dentistry field.

The AAID Benchmarking Study helps dentists better understand trends related to:

  • Staffing models, compensation and benefits.
  • Overall practice performance in terms of revenue and expenses.
  • Procedures and fees.
  • Effective marketing techniques used to drive business.

The AAID retained McKinley Advisors, a highly regarded research and consulting firm, to develop the questions, collect and compile the data, and provide insights based on years of experience in analyzing research data. Nearly 600 dentists completed the online survey during late summer and early fall, 2015. Respondents included both AAID members and non-members.

Some of the key findings were published in the Spring 2016 issue of the AAID News. Here’s a sampling:

  • 57 percent of implant dentists reported that implant dentistry represents less than 25 percent of the gross receipts of the practice. Another 25 percent said it represented between 26 percent and 50 percent.
  • 75 percent practice both surgical and restorative phases of implant dentistry.
  • 42 percent reported total receipts in the practice of less than $1 million.

The AAID study is an essential tool for all implant dentistry professionals. With it, practicing implant dental professionals can benchmark practice performance against peer practices of similar size and focus, and against the broader field as a whole.

Participants in the study received a free copy of the full report. The full 68-page report can be purchased from AAID for $245 to $295 for members of the AAID and $345 for non-members.
