Cost-Benefit Analysis, Dental Economics, Dentistry, Operative Dentistry


After the COVID-19 pandemic, attempts have been made to return to the old normality, but the changes have affected dental services. It was sought to determine the production cost and rate proposal for a restoration with 1.2 resin in a permanent tooth and to make a rate proposal. The results obtained from 26 samples indicated an average direct cost of $2.42 and an average indirect cost of $4.02 in an average execution time of 21:39 minutes. The average production cost is $6.45 and a fee amount of $14.65 is proposed.
