Over the past five years, the Dentists industry in Canada has exhibited growth due to an uptick in the use of dental services. With rising per capita disposable income over the five years to 2016, dental practices have had significantly lower administrative costs. This is partly owing to increased discretionary income, but also because industry operators have to secure fewer reimbursements from health insurance providers as compared with the overall healthcare sector. In the five years to 2021, the burgeoning elderly population will change demographics in Canada and, as a result, spur demand for restorative, cosmetic, periodontal and orthodontic care, boosting industry revenue.
This industry comprises establishments of licenced dentists primarily engaged in the private or group practice of general or specialized dentistry or dental surgery. Offices of dentists, especially walk-in centres that accept patients without appointment and that often have extended office hours, are sometimes called clinics or dental centres.
