There are a variety of sources concerning dental fees. The ADA publishes a detailed dental fee report about every 3 years. However, this report is based on data that is 2-3 years old.
There are insurance company associations that collect fee information from every insurance company and the sell the compiled database back to the insurance companies for millions. These include Medicaid clinics.
There are several "dental insurance consultants" that claim to have access to dental insurance company claims data. How is this possible? The average dentist can not check Delta or BC fee profiles. These reports may depend on dental insurance company DATA SPIN rather than the raw data, with information that is favorable to them. If a fee for a crown increases $25.00 , with 100,000 dentists doing 200 insurance covered crowns per year, this would be an additional expense of $500,000,000.00 for dental insurance companies. There are the frequent ads on Google and Yahoo for a $299.00++ report.
