Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

Over the past five years, the Dental Services industry has benefited from Australia's ageing and growing population.

Industry Report - Industry Investment Chapter

The Dental Services industry is characterised by low capital intensity. IBISWorld estimates that industry operators invest $0.08 in capital for every dollar spent on wages. The large disparity between wage costs and capital outlay is due to the high wages attained by dental practitioners. Dentists are highly educated and command a premium for the services they provide. Wage costs can also be understated in some cases, as sole proprietors often draw their personal income from profit rather than wages. Capital investment in dental practices remains significant, with practices having to invest in diagnostic equipment, drills, lasers, implements and chairs. Capital intensity is projected to remain stable over the next five years.
