San Jose, CA (PRWEB) October 22, 2008
Market for dental supplies is characterized by presence of well-established, traditional segments such as prosthetics and relatively new markets such as dental implants.

However, growth in the conventional supplies category may be tempered due to emerging procedures and technologies that require fewer supplies and materials.
