Great progress has been made in recent decades in understanding common oral diseases, such as tooth decay and gum diseases. The Australian population is ageing and more Australians are retaining their natural teeth over their lifetime, factors that are promoting demand for dental services. The Dental Services industry is expected to generate revenue of $6.56 billion in 2012-13, representing growth of 2.5% from the previous year. The average firm in the industry is small, with average revenue per firm estimated at just $985,000.
This industry includes registered general or specialist dental practitioners, or dental clinics in which a group of dentists is associated for purposes of carrying on their profession. Dental hospitals providing outpatient services only are also included in the industry.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
