Dentistry has come a long way throughout the past century, but each year it gets more and more advanced. With new state-of-the-art technology and techniques, you can expect to see dental care evolve even more through the next decade. Just look around you. Technology has changed a lot in the past few years, and this will only continue to happen. Continue reading to learn more about the new dental trends that you can expect to see more of throughout the next decade.

Artificial Intelligence

As AI technology becomes more complex and reliable, it can become useful in many different ways, including dental practices. For instance, AI will be able to review x-rays and scans, crown margins, and even establish aligners more accurately. This will both save your dentist’s time and offer you with a more quality and accurate experience.

Hygienist Responsibilities

In the dental office, your dentist is credited by a lot of the work, but your hygienist plays a huge role as well. In the future, you can expect this role to broaden even further. You may even see hygienists taking on more preventive, diagnostic, and restorative care for patients. This will allow the dentist to spend additional time focusing on more advanced procedures such as crowns and implants.


In the future, you can expect to see dental providers expand outside of their normal office spaces. They will be able to work with patients both in the office and out in the world. This makes it possible to meet with patients more often. Dental visits, like cleanings and checkups, will become easier to schedule and give patients more opportunities and choices so they can get the care they need.

Payment Models

As businesses are practices are evolving, so is the way that patients can expect to complete their payment. Dentists are expecting to find new ways to offer bookings, payment, and pre-authorization for patients. It will become easier to track dental data, and payments will become more transparent, allowing for more security.

Group Dentistry

It’s difficult for people to know how to maximize their benefits, especially with so many different plans and providers. In the future, dental offices plan to join together in order to provide more affordable services and standardized systems for patients.

The world around you is changing more quickly than you ever thought it could, and dentistry is no exception. Through the next decade, you can look forward to these new dental trends which will only improve your experiences with oral healthcare in the future.
