A Bright Future for The Dental Equipment Sector.

Globally, the dental equipment market is braced for unprecedented growth post-pandemic and looks to be valued at $16.5 billion ($16.5bn) by 2028. Thanks to an increase in medical tourism, greater numbers of the population suffering from oral diseases - and a sense of urgency for dental treatment as we emerge from the slowing of health services during the pandemic - players in this dental equipment sector have a bright future ahead.

But how are the market leaders making the most of this surge? The introduction of advanced dental equipment, from computer-aided imaging technology to dental lasers and dental radiology equipment, has been a central aid in making the most of the dental equipment climate. From KaVo Dental to Ivoclar, technological advancements have been impressive, and certainly worth showcasing.
