Survey Responses from Patients

Do you currently have dental pain?

          2015-  586/1422 answered yes  (41.2%)
          2014-  678/1832 answered yes  (37.0%)
          2013-  676/1688 answered yes  (40.0%)
          Average- (39.3%)

We were very surprised that such a high percentage of patients were in pain.  This speaks to the need for more dental care in Pennsylvania.

Have you visited a hospital emergency room for dental pain?

2015-  307/1422 answered yes (21.6%)
2014-  356/1832 answered yes (19.4%)
2013-  221/1000 answered yes (22.1%)
Average- (20.7%)

Again, one in five patients had visited an ER for dental pain, not a good use of healthcare dollars.




When was your last dental visit?

                                                2015          2014          2013

          0-12 months                 39.3%         26%            35.2%
          13- 24 months              17.9%         19%            21.1%        
          over 2 years/never        42.8%         55%            43.7%

It is of interest that an average of 47% of patients seen had not had any type of dental visit for over 2 years.  We did not differentiate between a preventive appointment versus an emergency or a treatment appointment, so the percentage of patients overdue for an exam and prophy in this population is quite alarming!
