Periodontists

Employment for periodontists is expected to grow by 6 percent through 2022, according to the U.S. Department of Labor, or more slowly than the average for all careers. Like other fields of medicine,┬áperiodontal procedures may change over time, which could affect demand. As Americans retain more teeth and live longer, they have more teeth at risk for periodontal disease. Furthermore, as the possible links between chronic periodontal infection and medical diseases become more widely known, people may be more motivated to receive regular periodontal care.
