The Global Dental Practice Management Software Market size is expected to reach $3 billion by 2025, rising at a market growth of 9.9% CAGR during the forecast period. Dental practice management software provides the means to administer the daily operations for dentists and other healthcare professionals. The features of these solutions range from scheduling appointments, storing and exchanging information, contact records, and reporting, to charting the dental history, patient notes, and treatment plans. These may also include communication systems for dentistry employees and help with claims for insurance reporting and monitoring. Such tools are used by receptionists and dentists to ensure that their businesses run smoothly and that critical information is stored securely and easily accessible.

The dental field is continually evolving and changing to better meet the needs of the patient. Every year, new trends are emerging in the dental industry. Research shows that groundbreaking in-house and emerging dental developments will be filled in the coming year, including new technologies, better business practices, and new ways to maximize patient experience— and even robo-dentists. Rapid dental evolution, including the transformation of stand-alone practice management tools into integrated EHR/practice management systems and specialized devices, would stimulate demand. Increasing venture capital funding and support from the government is also expected to fuel global market growth. Market growth can be attributable to ongoing technological advancements in the field, increasing geriatric population worldwide, and successful government initiatives in the oral healthcare industry.

Based on Deployment Mode, the market is segmented into Web Based, Cloud Based and On Premise. Based on Regions, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Latin America, Middle East & Africa.
