DVTOTVIS
Total number of dental care visits made during the year

Description

For all persons, DVTOTVIS captures the total number of dental care visits made during the year. These include visits to both general dentists (DVGTOTVIS) and orthodontists (DVOTOTVIS) providers. For a small proportion of sample persons, the sum of the general dentist and orthodontist visit variables is less than the total number of dental care visits because DVTOTVIS contains reported visits where the respondent did not know the type of provider.

Codes

DVTOTVIS is a 3-digit numeric variable.
