DVTOTVIS
Total number of dental care visits made during the year

Description

[ PRELIMINARY VARIABLE: Variable description may change once we confirm the universe and assess the comparability of this variable over time. ]

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.
