Dental care in South Korea is usually of a high standard. As the medical setting and dental services are changing in the country, the significance of educating dentists in response to systemic emergencies is also increasing. The current student-oriented education paradigm is moving toward training students for forming abilities that are essential to address the daily crises that they face, while also providing them with the ability to deliver knowledge.

In South Korea, the national dental scaling insurance policy has notably increased socioeconomic inequalities in dental scaling usage. As dental care access usually requires a high individual agency, expanded dental coverage may have had limited effects in reducing inequalities and may inadvertently widened the gap. In order to reduce dental care inequalities, global access with worldwide dental coverage should be considered in the country.

Key Market Trends

Dental Consumables is Expected to Dominate the Market

Dental consumables is one of the largest segments of the South Korean dental device market. The various products involved in the dental consumables are prosthetics, braces, crowns, dental impression materials, implants, and others. They are used for the treatment of dental disorders, such as tooth restoration, problems associated with gingival tissues, dental impairments, dental caries, and periodontal diseases.

Due to growing socioeconomic factors, many people have been able to afford these procedures. Moreover, the number of dentists is also growing in South Korea to meet the increasing demand for dental procedures.

As per the Ministry of Health and Welfare of South Korea, the number of dentists per 10,000 population has increased drastically in the past decade, with 56 dentists per 10,000 in 2014 to 58 per 10,000 in 2016 to 60 per 10,000 in 2018. Owing to these factors, the market of dental consumables is further expected to increase in the future as well.
