The dental care sector has been rebounding steadily since states have lifted restrictions on elective dental care. How big is the rebound so far? Will it continue until we reach pre-COVID-19 patient volume or is a new normal on the horizon? What type of dentistry is still being postponed? How ready is the U.S. population to go back to routine dental care visits?
