The diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of dental disorders are covered under dental services that are provided by dentists and dental professionals.

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted the dental care economy.

U.S. dental services market size, by type, 2020 - 2030 (USD Billion)

As a result of the imposed strict social distancing guidelines, dental practices were closed in many countries. According to the data from the American Dental Association’s Health Policy Institute (HPI), the dental sector was at standstill due to COVID-19 as dental practices were allowed only in emergency cases in the early stage of the pandemic. In March 2020, the American Dental Association (ADA) issued public guidance to postpone elective dental procedures. According to the ADA, the procedures that needed to be postponed included oral examinations, routine cleaning, radiographs, cosmetic procedures, and orthodontic treatments without pain management.

The emergency dental services included oral bleeding, dental or facial trauma, painful caries, tooth fractures, and abnormal tissue biopsies. Dental treatments encapsulate a wide array of services that help several patients in improving their oral health. The fillings and cement are being used in various treatments. The ongoing popular trend of smile makeover procedures is gaining attention. Moreover, technological developments in endodontics have helped in the adoption of root canal procedures. The invisible braces that help in reshaping and alignment of teeth are in high demand. The industry is anticipated to witness significant growth over the forecast period due to the introduction of new improved technologies, including dental caps, dentures, and drills.

The recommendations from dentists have helped in driving the demand for various dental services. In addition, the shifting focus on marketing efforts to commercialize the practices involves free dental camps, online campaigns, and dental education programs. Moreover, several unmet needs and a wide service portfolio in the field of oral care have encouraged dental equipment manufacturers to invest in R&D activities to develop and capitalize on innovative technologies. As more innovations emerge in the market, more patients are expected to avail services in the coming years. In April 2020, Pacific Dental Services (PDS), a leading dental support organization, announced the launch of TeleDentistry platform for patients in the U.S.

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to put pressure on urgent care centers and hospital emergency rooms and the launch of the platform is expected to have a positive impact on the community. With continuous economic growth and rapid urbanization around the globe, the disposable incomes of people have witnessed relatively steady growth. In addition, per capita, consumption expenditure on healthcare services is likely to significantly increase in the years to come. The rising health and wellness consciousness among the millennial population, along with the growing purchasing power, is expected to contribute to the industry growth over the forecast period.

Type Insights

On the basis of types, the global industry has been further categorized into dental implants, orthodontics, periodontics, endodontics, cosmetic dentistry, laser dentistry, dentures, oral & maxillofacial surgery, and others. In 2021, the dental implants segment dominated the global industry and accounted for the maximum share of more than 21.35% of the overall revenue. Dental implant restoration is considered an advanced oral procedure and it provides patients with functional and aesthetically feasible options for tooth replacement. According to the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (AAOMS), around 70% of adults aged 35 to 44 years have lost at least one tooth permanently due to disease, decay, or an accident.

Hence, the demand for implants is on the rise. The research & development in the field of dental implants have increased in the past few years and are anticipated to increase in the future, offering better biomaterials, surface modifications, and improved implant designs. The cosmetic dentistry segment is expected to witness the fastest growth rate from 2022 to 2030. The growth can be attributed to the rising adoption of teeth appearance improvement procedures. Some of the cosmetic dental procedures include teeth whitening to remove staining and treat discolorations. Moreover, patients prefer crowns, inlays & onlays, composite bonding, and veneers, among others.

End-use Insights

On the basis of end-uses, the global industry has been further categorized into hospitals and dental clinics. In 2021, the dental clinics segment dominated the industry and accounted for the maximum share of more than 68.30% of the overall revenue. The segment is projected to expand further at the fastest growth rate maintaining its leading position throughout the forecast period. The majority of dental patients visit private-practice dental clinics due to cost-efficiency and the availability of specialists & technologically advanced equipment. Over 80% of dental practices are run by the owners.

The number of independent practices is rising across the globe. During the initial phase of the COVID-19 pandemic, the dental care industry faced many issues as dentists’ offices were at high risk of spreading the infection. Dental clinics were not operating during the initial phase of the pandemic. However, the practices are getting back to their normal operations. In these unprecedented times, dental professionals must be well-informed about the recent guidelines to follow in accordance with the regulatory protocols to avoid the spread of the virus. The hospitals segment is also estimated to expand at a significant growth rate during the forecast period.

Regional Insights

In 2021, North America dominated the global industry and accounted for the maximum share of more than 48.65% of the overall revenue. The high share is attributed to various factors including a preventive approach towards oral care and hygiene, the presence of independent clinics, growing R&D activities in dentistry, and rising disposable income levels. The increasing government funding for dental programs is likely to contribute to industry growth. The U.S. federal funding for Medicare & Medicaid is expected to increase the demand for oral care services as patients are likely to pay less out-of-pocket expenses.

Dental Services Market Trends by Region

Asia Pacific is anticipated to witness the fastest growth rate from 2022 to 2030 due to the growing number of clinics, rising dental tourism, increasing R&D in manufacturing, and growing awareness about oral care. The majority of dental practices in the Asia Pacific region are private. The healthcare infrastructure in the region is expanding with advanced technology and equipment, which will support the industry's growth. Many companies and governments of various countries, such as China and India, are introducing initiatives to spread awareness regarding dental care. For instance, in June 2021, My Dental Plan added 4,000 more clinics, thereby expanding its reach to 250 cities by the end of 2021.

Key Companies & Market Share Insights

Due to the imposed social distancing guidelines in the early phase of the COVID-19 pandemic, dental practices were closed in many countries.

In June 2020, Aspen Dental launched its digital check-in platform, which is available in its 820 offices in 41 states. This platform will help patients in managing their dental visits conveniently.

Moreover, dental care practices rely on geographic expansion to strengthen their industry presence. As per July 2021 article, U.K. Dental Group plans to launch 400 clinic franchises across the nation in three years.
