The 3 Most Significant Trends Shaping The Future Of Dentistry

Staying on top of the latest trends and challenges is critical for dentists looking to succeed in today's rapidly changing industry. But with so much information out there, where should you start?

Dr. Lou Graham is the founder of Catapult Education, a continuing education company whose philosophy and programs use contemporary, interactive formats to integrate time-proven conservative dentistry with 21st-century materials and techniques.

Dr. Graham explains that one of the biggest challenges new professionals face is the increasingly difficult prospect of building a profitable dental practice. This is primarily due to the fact that recent graduates are entering the workforce with significant debt, making it difficult to purchase or build a dental practice from scratch.

Many graduates also have fewer requirements to graduate, which means they might need further education to succeed. Unfortunately, pursuing additional education can be difficult for many dentists, who may lack the resources to do so. 

Dr. Graham believes that education will become integral to growing a successful dental practice. He predicts that the industry will need to move towards a more collaborative model as dentists face increasing challenges that cannot be solved alone.
