Executive Summary: Advanced Dental Technologies makes it easy for general dentists to perform a surgical procedure that they currently do not do. The most profitable procedure in dentistry is dental implants. Advanced Dental Technologies provides a profitable platform for the general dentist to participate in the immature dental implant marketplace. Dental implant therapy is the most profitable procedure in dentistry. Growth will top 100 percent in the next 5 years. Currently, less than 10% of all general dentists participate in dental implant therapy. General dentists have the prime relationship with the end user of dental implants. Dental implantology is a highly lucrative business, (10 billion dollars in treatment revenues), in which methods have not changed allot in the last 20-30 years and technology advancement has not made a significant impact.
