Suddenly, millions of people are able to afford services like dentistry that they weren’t able to before; this has created such an enormous demand for dentists that local universities can’t teach new dentists fast enough.
Many dentists from abroad such as Taiwan, Japan, Korea, the U.S, and Europe, are now regularly visiting China to provide services to local patients. Hospitals and clinics in China are eager to partner with qualified foreign professionals to working domestically.
