Thus, China's dentist and oral medicine practitioners along with China’s economy have taken off very rapidly. However, in Europe, America, Japan and other developed countries where the average ranges one dentist per 1000 to 2000 people. This suggests there is still a big gap in China as far as oral health care. The country's development goal is to bridge this gap and aims to attain the average one dentist per 4,000 to 5,000 people in 2030. This means that over the next 10--20 years, Chinese dental hospitals and clinics will need to expand 5 times more than that of now in order to meet the demand of increasingly affluent Chinese people on treatment, care and cosmetic dental needs of oral diseases.

China is witnessing exceptional development and enhanced standard of living of its population. This has led to increased consumption level Chinese oral medicine, medical technology and services.
