Professional Dental Care Market: Growing Awareness about Dental Hygiene

Posted by Kriti on April 8th, 2021

The global professional dental care market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 4.5% from 2016 to 2021 to reach USD 961.0 Million by 2021.

Factors such as growing number of small/ private dental clinics, rising incidences of dental caries, increasing disposable incomes in emerging countries, growing awareness about dental hygiene, and economic gains for dental practitioners are the major factors driving the growth of the global market. However, increasing number of large/group dental practices and reluctance to adopt dental dispensing practices by dental practitioners are expected to restrain the growth of this market to certain extent.
