HAMILTON, NJ, July 18, 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 included in a new report from the National Association of Dental Plans (NADP), “2022 Benefits Utilization Trends.”

The report, which is published annually, is a study of benefit utilization trends. New in this year’s report is a breakdown into the number of procedures per 1,000 enrollees in each period, quarters, and calendar year, as a measure of enrollee use of their dental benefits. Also included for the first time in this year’s report is supplemental data provided by Fluent that presented a mix of procedures by type and by coverage tier for each state. The supplemental data is 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 NADP.

Paul T. Sheils, CEO of Fluent, said “We are excited for this brand-new partnership between Fluent and the NADP, and proud of the clarity that our data will bring to this important report, which highlights the past, present, and future of benefits utilization trends. We believe dental insurance payer organizations will find significant value in the report enhanced with Fluent’s data.”

“NADP is thrilled to offer our members the additional market insights made possible through Fluent’s data contributions, and we are happy to partner with Fluent,” added NADP Executive Director Mike Adelberg.
