How full dentists' schedules are, by specialty

Pediatric dentists and dentists in public health settings had fuller schedules than general practice dentists, according to a poll from the American Dental Association's Health Policy Institute.

Here is how full schedules were in the three different settings and specialties:

General private practice dentists: 86.7 percent

Pediatric private practice dentists: 90.7 percent
