Wage & Fee Survey

It is annual fee and wage survey time again! 2022 marks the 21st year that we have provided our annual survey of fees, wages and benefits as a public service to the dental community in Wisconsin and Upper Michigan.

With the competitive nature of the dental industry, rising costs, changing technology and increased competition for employees it is important to maintain appropriate fee, wage, and benefit levels.  Your fees, wages and benefits are significant factors in the overall financial success of your practice.  Our annual survey results provide a useful benchmark as you make important decisions about these key revenue and expense drivers.

We welcome new participants each year and would like to thank the hundreds of practices that have participated regularly over the past 21 years.  We look forward to including your practice data in our results this year! Please note that you may receive a paper copy of the survey via US Mail.  Please only complete the survey using 1 format of your choice.

Participation is easy!

Fill out the fee and wage/benefit pages by reporting data as of May 1, 2022. The forms are designed so that the fee page can be completed by one staff member and the confidential wage and benefit page can be prepared by a different authorized person.

Email, fax, or mail responses to us by July 31st. (Note: at a minimum, the staff hourly wage section must be completed to receive wage survey results.)

Receive your complimentary results by email in November 2022. We will issue your reports to the email address(es) you provide on the enclosed survey pages.

Thank you for your participation.  The DPA Team is committed to helping you achieve the success you desire in your practice by providing the highest level of practice support.  Please call our office with any questions.
