Why China?

Demand for dental products in China is expected to climb eleven percent annually through 2012. As many Chinese are paying increasing attention to their appearance and health in the wake of their increased living standards, the demand for up-to-date dental services is growing. Of China’s 1.3 billion plus people, 50 percent of the adults and 70 percent of the children have decayed tooth problems, and over 90 percent of the people have periodontal disease. The increase of special dental hospitals or clinics has also contributed the growing demand for dental equipment.
