Dentists in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Dentists in the US

Over the five years to 2019, the Dentists industry has benefited from advances in dental technology and improved access to care for older adults and low-income individuals. Rising disposable income and a low unemployment rate have also supported the ability of individuals to afford out-of-pocket payments for care, which constitute the second-largest source of industry revenue. The Dentists industry consists of dental health practitioners primarily engaged in the independent practice of general or specialized dentistry or dental surgery. Operators in this industry provide services in their own offices as private or group practices, or in the facilities of others, such as hospitals or HMO medical centers. Over the five years to 2024, industry revenue is projected to continue growing. Demand for industry services will particularly come from older adults, who tend to need more serious and more frequent dental care as they age. In addition, the continued expansion of dental care through Medicaid will enable low-income adults to access the care they need.


This industry includes health practitioners with Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD), Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) or Doctor of Dental Science (DDSc) degrees. Industry operators are primarily engaged in the independent practice of general or specialized dentistry or dental surgery. These practitioners operate private or group practices in their own offices (e.g. centers or clinics) or in the facilities of others, such as hospitals or HMO medical centers.
