HAMILTON, NJ, June 6, 2023 -- Fluent, the premier dental insights company delivering customized, actionable business intelligence to support a variety of dental stakeholder objectives, today announced that data from Fluent was utilized in a new report from the American Dental Association’s Health Policy Institute (HPI), "The Evolving Dental Practice Model."

The report, released by HPI’s Chief Economist Marko Vujicic, is a comprehensive look at practice modalities and how they have changed, as well as insights into dentist/DSO affiliation. For the first time, this new report supplements HPI's numerous data feeds with actual dental practice trend data from Fluent’s industry-leading DentaBase® which contains over 5 billion dental procedures and is growing at a rate of over 1 million dental procedures per day. DentaBase contains data on nearly 100% of actively practicing dentists in the U.S. Fluent’s Chief Analytics Officer, Tim Downey, acted as a consultant on the report, the first in a series of ongoing data collaborations between Fluent and the ADA. “Partnering with Fluent really took our data to the next level and we are excited about collaborating further” said Dr. Vujicic.

Paul T. Sheils, CEO of Fluent, said “We are proud of our collaboration with the American Dental Association’s Health Policy Institute and thrilled that Fluent’s unique data is helping to provide more clarity into the evolving dental market, from which dental payers, providers, and suppliers will all benefit.”
