    You can't find out those stats until the cycle ends. Last years stats are just now coming out.

    I'll give you one guess: they didn't go down...

    Actually, I think dental applications have reached their peak (about 12,500 per cycle). Its been hoovering around this number for past 2-3 years and I bet this coming year, same thing.

    However, If you were to look back to 2005 & 2006, it was around 8000.
