DentaScore is a starting point in determining a location's comparative potential for a dental practice. The score is automatically computed weekly based on numerous public and private data points. Scores range from 0 to 10 with higher numbers being better. DentaScore is Dentagraphic's comparison of the desirability of a location for a dental practice to similar locations, computed using a proprietary formula. It is not a prediction or an appraisal.
