Survey of Dental Fees


This exclusive survey provides you with an analysis of self-reported fees by procedure from a nationwide, random sample of dentists. Specialists and general dentists recorded the fees they charged most often for over 200 dental procedures.

Available free to members or for purchase through the ADA Catalog, the ADA’s 2020 Survey of Dental Fees also features:

  • National average fees broken down for both general practitioners and each of the six specialties
  • National level statistics for fees for more than 200 commonly performed dental procedures
  • Average fees charged by general practitioners broken down into nine regional areas, based on U.S. Census divisions
  • Standard deviation and percentiles for each fee
  • Dental procedures identified by procedure code and nomenclature from the Code on Dental Procedures and Nomenclature as published in the ADA’s CDT 2020

Of note, the survey is only intended to share self-reported data. It should not be interpreted as constituting a fee schedule in any way or used for that purpose. For an introspective look at fee changes over the past five years, the ADA' Health Policy Institute also created an interactive map highlighting fee changes over a five-year period from 2011 to 2016.
