Dentists by employment status in Germany from 2000 to 2017

Number of dentists in Germany from 2000 to 2017, by employment status

by Evgeniya Koptyug, last edited Aug 19, 2019
Dentists by employment status in Germany from 2000 to 2017 There are over 94 thousand dentists in Germany. Of these, over 72 thousand were actively employed. Numbers have been rising steadily in the last decade. University degrees in dentistry have fluctuated somewhat in recent years, amounting to 1,762 in 2017.
How often do Germans go to the dentist?

Regular visits to the dentist are usually a standard item on most people’s medical checklist. According to statistics on annual dentist consultations per capita in Germany, the number stood at 1.5 in 2016. This means that most people do not go to an appointment more than once a year. In fact, when individuals were surveyed on how often they go to the dentist, 41 percent answered twice a year, while 8 percent stated they went three times a year or more. Statutory health insurance spending on dental care in Germany has been increasing, though at a very slow rate.

To the teeth

Dentistry remains one of the more promising fields in terms of salary prospects in Germany, along with medicine in general. As in most countries around the world, dental care and treatments are usually quite expensive and require additional coverage outside of a health insurance package, if covered by insurance at all.
