The Research Commission will continue to publish the State Fact Sheets, the Annual State of the Dental Benefits Market Report, and Network Statistics by State and MSA on an annual basis.

It is because of your continued support of NADP research efforts that for stakeholders at the state, national and international level, NADP has become the recognized resource for the dental benefits industry.
