The Dental Practice Management Software Market is expected to grow at a rate of 10% by 2026.

Online appointment bookings, accounting & report generation, e-billing, insurance claiming, e-prescription facilities & dental imaging, and patient communication are some of the software’s key features.

The Dental Practice Management Software Market is expected to grow at a rate of 10% by 2026. The rising incidence of oral diseases and dental disorders, the increasing geriatric population, growing awareness regarding the importance of oral health, and increasing government support for the adoption of Electronic Dental Records (EDRs) are some of the main factors driving the global dental practice management software market.

Integration of Digital Imaging with Dental Practice Management Software Drives the Dental Practice Management Software Market

The integration of digital imaging capabilities with dental practice management software is a growing trend as a result of the development of digital radiography and software solutions. The software when combined with digital imaging helps dentists to create x-ray images of gums, teeth, and study patients’ dental conditions using digital X-rays, and simultaneously perform treatment planning.

A Move towards Cloud-based Dental Practice Management Software

Today’s dental practice is moving toward digital integration. The cloud-based software model is anticipated to expand rapidly over the next several years due to its flexibility, affordability, efficiency, security, scalability, user-friendly features, and automatic software updates. Additionally, browser-based cloud software can be used across multiple locations and platforms, including smartphones, tablets, desktops, windows, android, and apple products, among others.

“Cloud offers a flexible, scalable environment at a lower cost than on-premise deployments but still a majority of dental practice management software solutions are currently implemented on-premise due to security, control, and privacy reasons. However, the trend is shifting towards hybrid cloud-based software solutions.” – Executive Chairman, Dental Practice Management Software Company, US

The price of advanced digital solutions such as scanning and milling devices has been too high and utilization levels are too uncertain to pay off for most individual practice owners. These factors are likely to hamper the dental practice management software market growth.
