From the period of 2022 to 2028, the Global Dental Practice Management Software Market is expected to reach USD 3,396.3 Million in terms of revenue, growing at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 9.8%.
According to the American Dental Association (ADA), older people enter the second round of cavity-prone years primarily as a result of dry mouth, which can be a side effect of medications for asthma, high blood pressure and cholesterol, pain, anxiety, Parkinson's, and Alzheimer's disease. Aa these medications are used by a large portion of the geriatric population; they are more prone to oral health problems. Demand for DPM software is expected to rise as a result. Due to supportive government policies and increased awareness about oral health, the number of independent practitioners has increased significantly. Since a large number of patients seeking oral care are either uninsured or have insurance plans that do not cover oral medical care, patients who visit independent practitioners frequently pay out of pocket.
The increasing number of dental clinics and hospitals, as well as strong government support for the adoption of Electronic Dental Records (EDRs), are the primary drivers of market growth. Furthermore, increased patient flow to dental clinics and hospitals has been attributed to the global population's high prevalence and incidence rates of dental caries, an increase in the number of cases of missing teeth, periodontal diseases, and prosthetic rehabilitation. Furthermore, technological advancements in the industry, as well as increased investments by corporations in emerging markets, are expected to drive the market.
