Concept vs. Reality

Concept vs. Reality: What Does the Future State of Dental Really Look Like Through Data? A realistic, data-driven glimpse at where the dental industry may go based on forecasted patient and procedure trend

Wednesday, September 20
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM (PT)

Lately, there has been an increasing buzz about several external forces and their impact on the dental market. From increased use of A.I. technology to the growth of Medicare Advantage plans to Medical Loss Ratio laws and demand for a better “member experience,” — what does it all mean for the dental market? While some may talk about a future conceptual state of dental, grounding those possibilities in practical, data-driven insights is a more valuable reference.

In this presentation, Fluent’s forecasting and analytics experts will walk through the changing dental market for payers and providers, how fees, utilization, and treatments may vary, and strategy-guiding insights that could help dental organizations plan their next moves. Among these insights are opportunities to build better bridges between payers and providers, and the Fluent team will discuss some of them. 

In this session, the audience will…

  • Understand how payers can assess past and future utilization trends. 
  • Learn how the current market recovery is already different than the 2008 dental market recovery and what that means for the future.
  • What do demographic changes mean for oral healthcare
  • An overview of current fraud, waste, and abuse trends.
