According to recent statistics, the dental implant market is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 5.66% from 2021 to 2026. It is also forecasted to reach $6.711 billion by 2026, up from $4.566 billion in 2019. A surge in the proportion of the aged population, increasing awareness of oral health, and changing societal beauty standards have all contributed to the rise in dental implant demand. Will you be able to meet it?
This research reveals that more patients are opting for implants over dentures and crowns, emphasizing the need for dentists to adapt and learn to meet their patients’ changing needs. If you are a dentist committed to staying on the cutting edge of your field and offering the most advanced treatments to your patients, consider seeking out the training necessary to place implants or risk being left behind for more advanced practices.
According to Dr. Steven Calhoun of DeBary Dentistry, “In my previous practice, I was facing stagnant career growth and a limited capacity to treat complex cases. I was stalling out both clinically and professionally. I wasn’t happy having to refer out so many patients, but I also didn’t have the time or support I needed to continue my education. As soon as I joined Operation Dental and expressed an interest in placing implants, they helped facilitate the training I needed and started marketing my skills to attract new patients. Not only have I advanced as a dentist, but the increase in production has greatly benefited our practice financially. I’m proud knowing that we can offer our patients the very best.”
We support our dentists through continuing education and encourage them to improve their clinical skillsets. Through dental implant training, many of our dentists have been able to accelerate their careers and increase their production rates through the ability to treat more advanced cases. We stand by our mission to give dentists the tools they need to offer the highest quality care to their patients.
Dr. Derek Stallard of Palm Springs Dental recently completed advanced training in implant dentistry, including complex bone grafting techniques. “By doing this training,” says Dr. Stallard, “I could position myself and my office to treat more complex cases in the Orlando area. I also find joy in teaching other dentists in our organization how to confidently diagnose and treat these cases. The more I learn, the more courses I want to take, as there are many different philosophies. As a dentist, I always try to push myself to accomplish new techniques that keep me stimulated and satisfy my internal want of growth.”
At Operation Dental, we combine the resources, systems, and support of a large corporate DSO and the clinical autonomy and patient-centered feel of a private practice.
