Author information

  • 1Health Policy Resources Center, American Dental Association, USA. guaya@ada.org


Dentistry has achieved substantial improvements in productivity which have the effect of making more care available at reasonable cost. Data are presented documenting trends in productivity. These are analyzed with respect to number of dentists, hours worked by dentists, and the use of ancillary personal in dental offices. There is strong evidence linking increased productivity to the use of ancillary personnel. The history of creation, recognition, and integration of ancillary personnel into dental practice is also presented.
