Market analysts predict a 20% decrease in dental patient volume and revenue in 2021. As a fellow dentist, I should be worried about these predictions. Instead, I’m rather optimistic.
That’s because these predictions are based on the assumption that dentists will not be learning profitable new skills that are in high demand.
I have a far more positive prediction; dentists who learn orthodontics early in 2021 could have their best year to date.
And why not? After all, orthodontics is profitable and in high demand. In fact, a recent report by Fortune Business Insights shows that the global orthodontics market is expected to reach USD 9.72 Billion at 11.6% CAGR by 2026.
New grads vs Established dentists – who benefits from offering orthodontics?
For new grads, learning orthodontics in their first 5 years is a massive advantage, allowing them to become better clinicians as they understand function and occlusion, achieve better results, retain customers and stand out from competitors.
For general dentists with established practices, it’s not too late either. As we’ve seen, 2021 could be the perfect time to learn orthodontics or improve your orthodontic skills as the demand continues to skyrocket.
How can you choose the right training?
Your orthodontic tuition should provide a range of training options—not just one size fits all. The training itself should be based on principles, not a rigid cookbook approach . This way, you’ll be able to take on a variety of cases and treat any patient with total confidence and no suprises.
Another major benefit is having hands-on training components and hands-on case support once you’re back at your practice. Sadly, most providers do not offer this.
