Academy of General Dentistry Releases Updated Employment Statistical Map
Date:4/15/2008

Chart reveals dental profession employs more than 786,000 workers

CHICAGO, April 15 /PRNewswire/ -- The Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) announced the release of its updated statistical map entitled "The Economic Contribution of the Dentistry Profession in 2006" that details how many employees, broken down into numbers per congressional district and state, work in the dental profession. The map also provides figures for the annual payroll of these employees. The data clearly shows how much the dentistry profession contributes to each congressional district and state, both in terms of number employed and payroll totals.

The innovative map can be found on the AGD's Web site at http://www.agd.org/issuesadvocacy/reports/ . By clicking on any state, online visitors can find employment data organized by state and congressional district or view a chart listing totals state-by-state.

Copies of statistics from every congressional district have been delivered to each legislator's office, along with a copy of the AGD's fact sheets on its legislative goals for the second session of the 110th Congress including enactment of Deamonte's Law (HR 2371), the Children's Dental Health Improvement Act (S 739/HR 1781), and the Meth Mouth bill (S 1906/HR 3186).

"This is the third year that the AGD has compiled these statistics," said AGD President Vincent Mayher, DMD, MAGD. "These numbers show legislators how many of their constituents are employed by the dental profession, which is important information for legislators as they consider AGD's legislative priorities for this year and the organization's overall goal of better access to oral health care," Mayher added. Data for many counties is not available from the Bureau of Labor Statistics because there were too few persons listed for that county.

The AGD compiled this data from the 2006 U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, Qua
