Welcome to IDT Weekly! I’m Jason Mazda, and here’s what’s new. The global dental laboratories market size is predicted to reach $43.5 billion by 2028, growing at a compound annual growth rate of 5.5%. That’s according to a report from The growth is attributed to increasing cosmetic dental procedures, the geriatric population, and awareness regarding oral hygiene, among other factors. Carequest Institute for Oral Health and the American Institute of Dental Public Health issued strategic recommendations to improve veteran oral health, highlighting a worrying gap in care and access. The numbers in this white paper are striking, and a need for restorative treatments is among the most important topics.
