Abstract : The purpose of this investigation was to study the effect of time in service in the U.S. Army Dental Crops on treatment out-put. A correlation analysis was performed on the relationship between the independent variable of years spent in service by Army dentists to the dependent variable of daily work out-put as measured by relative dollar value. Since dental treatments at Army facilities are not based on an actual system of fees for services rendered a system for assigning a relative dollar value to dental procedures has been established as a management tool within the Army Dental Care system, Year group and the mean daily relative dollar value of work from three separate 10-day periods were obtained from 348 dental officers assigned to nine Dental Activities distributed throughout the eastern and southern United States. A significant positive relation was found between years in service and work out-put.
