The Dentists industry in the United States has benefited from favorable demographic trends, technological advances and mounting awareness of oral hygiene over the five years to 2017. Moreover, the industry as a whole is currently receiving more health insurer reimbursements than it has historically. As a result, profitability for clinics has improved over the past five years as more patients visited the dentist. Over the five years to 2017, industry revenue is expected to grow. Moving forward, the industry shift to dental practice management companies is expected to enable specialized dentists to group together to provide more in-house services at a single location, thereby bolstering patient referral volumes. As a result, industry revenue is forecast to grow over the five years to 2022.
