We are survey junkies – we admit it. The latest Oral Health Projections report was released which projects our workforce through 2030. With unemployment and COBRA benefits extending further into 2021, some employees are thinking that there is no rush to return. Schools are opening slowly which is keeping parents home. What else can we expect?
We reviewed which specialties are booming (kids are popular!) and which are dipping. Consumer behavior is having a huge effect on one specialty in particular. Tune in while we break it down.
Survey – Oral Health Projections 2017 – 2030
Hygiene is booming – what about in five years?
“I understand why the decisions were made, but some of the decisions left a bad taste in mouths that hasn’t been erased.”
“We’re starting to see that opening up dental schools is a good business.”
“It’s the paperwork, it has killed the creativity in so many industries.”
“There are a lot of places in this country, people need help, and they can’t get it because it doesn’t make economic sense.”
“There are so many places in this country that are really great if you are from there, but convincing people to move there is a struggle.”
“When you have two assistants, assisting one doctor the potential is there for great production and great patient care.”
