Dentists: number practicing in Europe in 2017, by country In 2017, there were over 70 thousand practicing dentists in Germany, the highest number recorded in Europe. Followed by Italy with almost 50 thousand dentists and then France with around 43.1 thousand. As these countries have some of the highest populations in the European Union, it is follows that they have the highest number of practicing dentists.
Visiting the dentist

While in Great Britain, the share of respondents who visit a dentist at least once a year is slightly lower at 74 percent.
