U.K. Dental Service Organization Market Size, Service, 2020- 2030 (USD Billion)

The dental service organization market witnessed a minor setback due to COVID-19 in the second and third quarters of 2020 particularly due to supply chain bottlenecks and the closure of dental clinics. However, after the second quarter of 2020, dental procedures started to resume leading to a full market recovery by 2021.

Dental Service Organizations (DSO) are Private Equity (PE) backed independent business support centers that provide administrative and compliance services to dental practitioners. The non-clinical services offered by a DSO range from human resources, branding, dental supply/device procurement & maintenance to accounting services. The DSOs provide greater buying power as they have the ability to negotiate with vendors and thus lower dentists' supply costs. 

DSOs create a standardized and uniform approach across their dental practices to provide efficient dental services to patients every time they come into the clinic. This standardization also includes uniform compliance with regulations, as well as the ability for the practices to learn the best practice methods.

Key dental device manufacturers like Institut Straumann and Dentsply Sirona which capture major market share in the dental market have undertaken new initiatives like collaborating with Dental Service Organizations for the distribution of dental equipment. In September 2021, Straumann Group announced a strategic partnership with Aspen Dental Management, Inc., (ADMI). Aspen Dental has around 1000 ADMI dental offices across 45 U.S states and this partnership will allow Straumann to supply dental implant solutions, abutments, and CAD/CAM systems to all of the ADMI practices in the country. This will assist the company to increase its product penetration within the dental market and also increase its revenue as the company’s access to 1000 dental practices is possible under one DSO roof.

This trend of dental manufacturers collaborating and partnering with DSOs has been quite prominent recently as it helps implement innovative diagnostic software, new dental products, and equipment on a broader level with the help of a DSO, saving the company a lot of time and cost which would have been high if they approached independent practices

As per the American Dental Association, around 16% of young dentists from ages 21 to 34 are affiliating themselves with DSOs, enabling them to focus on the patient wholly while delivering dental care. The percentage of dental school seniors who plan to join DSO-supported practices has also increased from 12% in 2015 to 30% in 2020. The benefits provided by the DSOs is expected to lead to more affiliations and are thus expected to increase the market growth.

The onset of COVID-19 impacted the overall dental and oral hygiene market. Regular dental visits, appointments, and consultations ceased in many countries and key manufacturers reported supply chain and operational constraints in 2020. However, the market resumed by the end of 2020 and the revenue started to recover in 2021. According to the American Dental Association, 39% of practices in the U.S are fully operational with the volume of patients they had pre-pandemic. This indicates that the dental market is recovering from the losses caused by the pandemic. Moreover, the DSO market witnessed many acquisitions and partnership initiatives post-pandemic and witnessed private equity flooding the marketplace and this is expected to boost the market growth.
