Dentists in Canada - Industry Market Research Report

Dentists in Canada

Over the past five years, the Dentists industry in Canada exhibited growth due to an uptick in the use of dental services and increased expenditure on dental services. With per capita disposable income growing over the five years to 2018, dental practices have had to secure fewer reimbursements from health insurance providers compared with the overall healthcare sector. Some provinces and territories have a very low dentist-to-patient ratio, while other provinces are oversaturated. This limits some Canadians' access to dental care services. Overall, 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.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
