When planning for their business growth, dental product manufacturers and suppliers often require high-quality data on the location of new and emerging business opportunities.  That’s what makes the new geospatial market analysis tools produced by the Australian Dental Industry Association (ADIA) so exciting.

Using the latest online geospatial mapping technology, ADIA members will have access to a map of Australia which allows them to identify the number of dental professionals by postcode. 

Geospatial mapping data analysis ―

. Number of oral-maxiofacial in total and per 1,000 people
. Number of orthodontists  in total and per 1,000 people
. Number of prosthetists in total and per 1,000 people
. Number of oral health therapists in total and per 1,000 people
. Number of dental health therapists in total and per 1,000 people

Provided to the industry in a geographical format for the first time, this tool will help business plan their marketing and sales activities more effectively than has been possible in the past.  Gone is the guesswork associated as to where to be focus on-the-ground product marketing and promotional activities.
