|The Community Overview Report is a tool to evaluate a community, a site, or a region for a dental practice.
It is divided into three parts:
- Psychographics (Lifestyles)
The Report is written so dental professionals can understand the implications of the data that is revealed from THEIR perspective.
The Report starts with an Overview that discusses the time-distance measurements (isochrones) needed to determine where potential patients will likely travel to get to the location. This analysis of the speed limits, geographical barriers, psychological barriers, landmarks, and major transportation arteries gives the reader and understanding of the “big picture” of the site.
Included in this section is an overview of “demographic gravity.” This is an analysis of WHY people travel past a given site.
The Area-of-Study normally consists of up to 8 Zip Codes. For specialists, this may include slightly more. If desired, we can provide a depiction of the Effective Practice Area if the client will fax to us the number of patients per Zip Code.
The ratio of dentist-to-population is examined. For dental specialists, this includes an analysis of the referral base relative to the area of study or practice site. Another map is included that shows the distribution of dentists around the Area of Study.
Our consideration of competition takes into account both individual dentists and dental practices. We draw upon several databases to determine the number of dentists including Component/Constituent Dental Society, Donnelly Databases, Select Data, and yellow page directories.
The key demographic statistics are presented in full-page, color graph and chart formats. The information includes a prose analysis of why a particular bit of data might be important for a dental practice in a given site. The data includes
- Projected Population
- Median Age
- Median Income
- Income by Percentage
- Age by Percentage
- Per Capita Income
- Average Disposable Income
- Product Purchase Categories
To make sure the Client truly understands the population, we provide an analysis of the ACORNtm Lifestyle Groups and Employment/Employee/Industry data and analysis. These powerful tools provide as complete an analysis of the Area of Study available specifically for dentists that can be found anywhere.
This Lifestyle data explains what people watch, buy, and shop as well as how they relate to dentistry. This is especially important in determine a target market and to pursue a marketing plan.

A person can get data from any source. It is the Analysis of that data in a way that puts the information perspective for dentists that is most important. Just what makes an area good or bad, filled with potential or burdened with risk is what a dental marketing analyst of demographic data can provide. It is the perspective gained with training and years of experience that makes these Reports so invaluable.
