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.

If you are interested in buying, selling or building a dental practice, do not rely on this data for determining the desirability of a location. It is a starting point that you should supplement with other research such as:

  • Your individual practice strategy;
  • A comparative market analysis from a real estate agent;
  • A business valuation or appraisal from a professional appraiser;
  • Visiting the practice location.
