Finland Dental Care Market Executive Summary

Finland's dental care market is at around $75.35 Mn in 2022 and is projected to reach $xx Mn in 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of xx% during the forecast period. Finland is a country in Northern Europe, with its capital in Helsinki. It is also one of the costliest countries in the eurozone to live in; yet, the high cost of living may offset Finland's status as the Happiest Country in the World. Finland is known for having the best education system in the world, the cleanest air, and one of the safest nations to live in Europe when it comes to health and safety. All permanent residents are also entitled to free or reduced-cost healthcare services. In Finland, the public healthcare system, sometimes known as universal healthcare, provides services to all citizens. In Finland, healthcare is paid by taxes and social security payments. The Ministry of Social Affairs and Health is responsible for policymaking as well as executing the country's direction in healthcare policies, with an emphasis on disease prevention and health promotion.

While government initiatives focus on health promotion and social welfare policies, the healthcare system is largely decentralised, with individual municipalities (local governments) organising and delivering actual healthcare to Finns. Finnish public healthcare is regarded as of high quality. While waiting times for secondary medical care can be extensive (3 months or more), as is the case with any public health system in the world, all primary healthcare centres offer telephone consultations. There, you can describe your symptoms and get rapid assistance before seeing your family doctor.

Adults and children in Finland can get economical dental care through health centres (terveysasema) or dental clinics (hammashoitola). You can also schedule a consultation with a private dentist. Even if you are not experiencing pain or other symptoms, it is critical to have frequent dental exams. Dental disorders are easier to treat if they are diagnosed before symptoms appear. Your oral and dental health has an impact on your entire health. If you live in Finland and have a municipality of residence (kotikunta), you have the right to access public dental care services. The Finland dental care market is expected to be worth $75.35 million in 2022 and $123.77 million in 2030, with a CAGR of 6.4% over the forecast period. Kela will pay a portion of the charge by Finnish social security. Kela will not, however, compensate for merely aesthetic dental care. Individuals can receive dental care from private practitioners or clinics in addition to the public dental care system. These providers may provide a broader choice of services or have quicker wait times than the public system, but they usually demand a higher premium.

Market Dynamics

Market Growth Drivers

As the population ages, there will be greater demand for dental care services, particularly for treatments such as dentures and implants which have limited centres in primary care facilities. Private care providers on the other hand readily cater to these needs with faster turn-around. The economy improves, and people will have more disposable income to spend on dental care services this can lead to people seeking better care from competitive providers. Advancements in dental technology such as in prostheses like flexible dentures, implant-supported fixed prostheses, and laser surgeries for gingival conditions - can help dental corporations offer more advanced and efficient treatments. Government policies such as increasing public dental care funding or implementing dental insurance plans also drive growth for dental care providers.

Market Restraints

In Finland, the public dental care system is widely available and provides high-quality care at a reasonable cost. Private dental firms may find it harder to acquire and keep customers as a result of this competition. Dental services can be costly, especially for advanced procedures like orthodontics or implant surgery. This can make it difficult for certain people, particularly those with little financial resources, to afford private dental care. Because insurance coverage for dental treatment is restricted, the cost of dental care is an out-of-pocket expense, which may decrease demand for private dental care. In some places, there may be a shortage of dental experts, making it difficult for dental firms to develop or create new clinics. Government rules, like as pricing limitations or advertising restrictions, might hamper dental firms' capacity to compete effectively in the market. Economic downturns can reduce demand for non-essential services such as dental treatment, limiting the expansion of dental firms.

  • Suomen Hammaslääkäriasema
  • Oral Hammaslääkärit

Healthcare Policies and Regulatory Landscape

Private health care services supplement municipal services, accounting for more than a quarter of all social and health care services in Finland. Companies, independent practitioners, organisations, and foundations that provide private services may sell their services to municipalities, joint municipal authorities, or directly to clients. Private providers offer both primary health care and specialised medical care. Private health services in Finland are partially subsidised with public funding because Kela reimburses medical expenses. Private healthcare providers must get a licence from a Regional State Administrative Agency or the National Supervisory Authority for Welfare and Health in order to operate (Valvira). When a healthcare professional works as an independent practitioner, no licence is required. When a healthcare professional works as an independent practitioner, no licence is required. Independent practitioners, on the other hand, must record their actions to the Regional State Administrative Agency. To practise their trade, licenced healthcare professionals must hold a Valvira licence. The Ministry of Social Affairs and Health (STM) is in charge of social and health policies and legislation. The ministry directs health care in partnership with the agencies and institutions that fall under its purview. The National Institute for Health and Welfare (THL), the Finnish Medicines Agency (Fimea), the Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority, the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health (TTL), and the National Supervisory Authority for Welfare and Health are all part of the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health (Valvira).

Reimbursement Scenario

All residents of Finland have their Kela Card issued to prove their eligibility for social security and National Health Insurance in Finland. Kela Card also gives discounts for buying medicines. However, it is only available to persons moving to Finland on permanent status. Finland is in the European Union; therefore, citizens of the EU, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, and Switzerland are entitled to public healthcare upon the provision of a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). The private sector in Finland consists of primary care centres, dental offices, and specialist care, however, since the public healthcare system is excellent, the private sector is relatively small. Nevertheless, expats living in Finland still prefer private healthcare facilities as they offer shorter waiting times, especially for secondary or specialist care in Finland, dentistry, and physiotherapy services. Except this, expats often choose international health insurance to use all over Europe or the world when they travel abroad.
