Dental, Castle Dental, and Monarch Dental; and Western Dental. International companies include Abano Healthcare (New Zealand), Bupa Dental Care (UK), and OdontoPrev (Brazil).
The American Dental Association (ADA) reported over 200,000 dentists working in the industry in 2020. Spending on dental services varies from country to country. In the US, dental spending reached about $49.6 billion in 2020, according to DentistryiQ.
About 136,000 dentists' offices operate in the US, generating annual revenue of about $126 billion.
Competitive Landscape
Demand for dental services is driven largely by population growth, especially among children ages 5 to 19, who may require prophylactic and orthodontic work, and adults over 55, who may need more specialized dental work. Profitability depends on efficient operations. Large practices have advantages in marketing, purchasing, and being able to offer a wider range of services. Small practices can compete successfully by providing superior service or by focusing on an underserved region. The US industry is highly fragmented: the 50 largest practices generate about 5% of revenue.
