Dental Directions -Strategic options for the Independent Dentist

Seminar Overview
The £9.6 billion UK Dental market is a sector presenting opportunities for growth both in the NHS and private dentistry context (Mintel 2016).

The sector is characterised by a fragmented market dominated by independent dental ownership with 90% of the UK’s 13,815 dental practices being owner-managed businesses.

The market benefits from an ageing population, increased dental health expectations and the increasing public understanding of the importance of good dental hygiene. In terms of market opportunity 40% of the UK population do not visit the dentist on a regular basis and a proportion have never visited a dentist.

As the UK economy has strengthened, the sector has observed an increasing demand for high-value cosmetic dentistry e.g. dental implants, facial aesthetics, tooth whitening, etc.
