MADISON, Wis. (10/19/11)—The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry is giving away Kindle Touch readers to five individuals who are among the first 100 respondents of its 2011 industry survey. The winners will be selected at random.
The AACD’s 2011 State of the Cosmetic Dentistry Survey aims to gather data that will provide in-depth analysis of the continued and projected growth in cosmetic dentistry, the demographics making up typical patient bases nationwide, and more insights into the ever-evolving field of cosmetic dentistry.
“The AACD has always been an industry leader, and now it’s time to see how our member dentists and others are performing in this economy,” said AACD President John Sullivan, DDS. “We anticipate that the industry is still experiencing growth—even in this tough economy—and we want to validate just how well it’s doing.”
The AACD previously conducted an industry survey in 2007, but held off on performing a follow-up survey due to the unfavorable economic climate. “The results would have been skewed as many of our members, and dentists nationwide, had to make adjustments to their practices to avoid the effects of the economic downturn," Sullivan said.
The AACD hopes to release the results of its survey in the coming months. Any practicing dentist is eligible to complete the survey.
