Apple Tree has partnered with researchers and numerous coalitions over the years to support data-driven advocacy. Since inception, Apple Tree has maintained a robust database of patient information as a resource for researchers interested in studying the impact of oral health care delivery on a target population. In addition to collecting the typical demographic and dental treatment data, Apple Tree utilizes dental and medical diagnostic codes (currently ICD-10 codes). This unique database provides valuable information about the patients and outcomes of care.
Apple Tree Dental takes pride in collaborating with major research organizations on exciting projects. Recently, we have been working with the Mayo Clinic’s Rochester Epidemiology Project, the Center for Health Workforce Studies, Pew Charitable Trusts, West Health Institute, and more.
