Valmont Research was founded in 2003 by Dr. Greg Drevenstedt to provide market research for clients across healthcare with an emphasis on dentistry.

Dr. Drevenstedt received his doctorate in Demography and Sociology from the University of Pennsylvania and completed a postdoctoral fellowship in Demography at the University of Southern California. He worked for a global market research firm and started Valmont Research after discovering everyday healthcare practitioners need access to demographic data to improve their businesses.

Dr. Drevenstedt has received grants from the National Science Foundation and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. His research has been published in peer-reviewed journals including JADA—The Journal of the American Dental Association, The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Social Science and Medicine, and Demographic Research, among others. He has written articles for Dental Practice Report, Orthodontic Products, and The Blair-McGill Advisory, and presents at the annual meetings of the American Dental Association and the Hinman Dental Society.
