A visit to the dentist used to be something feared as many connect it with pain and discomfort. This was often the result of tools being uncomfortably positioned inside your mouth. Through the years, technological advancements in dentistry have emerged, helping to ease patient anxiety. These new technologies not only improve existing procedures, but also help make patients more comfortable.
As Taiwan is one of the leaders in the dentistry industry, Taiwan Excellence hosted a “Dentistry of Excellence” webinar showcasing five Taiwanese companies most innovative products on Wednesday (Sept 30th). The event was jointly held by TAITRA, the foremost trade promotion entity in Taiwan, and the Bureau of Foreign Trade, Ministry of Economic Affairs.
Ms. Leonor Lin, President & CEO of the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA), stated that Taiwan covers 94% of dental material mong the entire global dentistry product line and the output value is expected to reach US 10 billion by 2025. It is estimated that the global dental implant market demand will reach its peak in 2026, where business opportunities are expected to approach US$570 billion.
