ED Visits Involving Dental Conditions

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) published a new statistical brief, “Emergency Department (ED) Visits Involving Dental Conditions, 2018.” This brief updates a similar report from 2009 and provides valuable information about dental-related ED visits. The brief reports that in 2018, there were more than 2 million dental-related emergency department (ED) visits, which represented 615.5 visits per 100,000 population. It is important to note that Pennsylvania is not one of the 40 states that participates in this database.
