Rockland County Demographics and Denture Demand
Demand for a denture dentist in Rockland County is modest. A suburban county of New York, the population is about 325,000, and is growing faster than the average for New York State. Rockland County also has a higher average income than the State of New York and the US. The median household income in Rockland County is about $85,000, compared to about $53,000 for New York State and the US.
Demand for a denture dentist in Rockland County is mediated by many factors. First, people of higher income are less likely to become fully edentulous. People who get a high school education are less likely to lose their teeth. The high school graduation and GED rate in Rockland County is about the same as that in New York State, around 88%. Rockland County is in the top 10% for many factors that contribute to tooth loss, including smoking and obesity. On the other hand, physical activity was in the middle of the country, and with life expectancy being among the highest in the country, the population might need more dentures just on the basis of age. We might estimate that the total edentulous rate among people age 65 and over is about 14%. With 13.6% of the population age 65 and over, this means that the overall edentulous rate is probably 2-3% of the population, with perhaps 10,000 people needing the service of a denture dentist.
The Benefits of FOY® Dentures in Rockland County
With a relatively small number of people needing dentures in Rockland County, there is more demand for high-quality dentures provided by a skilled denture dentist. People don’t want to be known as the one of their friends who has dentures. And they don’t want their dentures to make them look older. The pressure to maintain a youthful, vibrant appearance is increased by the proximity to New York City, which has a very youthful and very appearance-conscious population. Since many Rockland County residents work, play, and shop in NYC, they are subject to this pressure.
