To curb the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, the government of various countries declared complete lockdowns and travel restrictions, thereby halting the majority of dental procedures. Dentists around the world incorporated several measures to help minimize infection transmission and continue dental practices. One of the major measures was the use of virtual dentistry. These enabled patients to benefit from dental care by remotely consulting with top dentists. In addition, the support from the government in implementing virtual dental practices is enhancing the usage of teledentistry among people. Hence, the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted industry growth.

The prevalence of oral diseases is increasing and this disease is considered to be one of the most common conditions globally. According to a report published by the WHO on May 15, 2022, nearly 2 billion people suffer from caries of permanent teeth and 520 million children have primary teeth caries. Hence, consulting a dentist on a regular basis to maintain oral health is a major factor in boosting the growth of the market. In addition, increasing disposable income in developing economies flourishes cosmetic dentistry adoption, which is further fueling industry growth.

Major players in the market are investing in many strategic initiatives, such as acquisitions, mergers, partnerships, and software launches, to maintain a competitive edge in the market. For instance, in January 2022, Dentulu, Inc. announced its partnership with Independa, a health hub that provides easy-to-use video chat solutions. This was initiated to enhance teledentistry services via LG television for better patient convenience. In addition, the leaders in the market are collaborating with each other to enhance the teledentistry solution portfolio. For instance, in May 2020, Koninklijke Philips N.V. collaborated with Toothpic, a leading dental e-health solution provider to launch a professional teledentistry solution. This collaboration will enable Toothpic to complement Philip’s Sonicare teledentistry solution. Such activities are expected to boost the industry growth over the forecast period.
