Aging teeth: The burgeoning elderly population will spur industry demand

Over the past five years, the Dentists industry in Canada exhibited growth due to an uptick in the use of dental services and increased expenditure on dental services. With per capita disposable income growing over the five years to 2018, dental practices have had to secure fewer reimbursements from health insurance providers compared with the overall healthcare sector. Some provinces and territories have a very low dentist-to-patient ratio, while other provinces are oversaturated. This limits some Canadians' access to dental care services. Overall, the burgeoning elderly population will change demographics in Canada, and as a result, spur demand for restorative, cosmetic, periodontal and orthodontic care, boosting industry more.
