Culture, Demographics, and Denture Demand in Columbus, Ohio
Columbus is the largest city in Ohio, and on size alone there is probably significant demand for a denture dentist. It's also one of the state's youngest and most vibrant communities. In many ways, it is considered the quintessential American city, and is commonly used as a test market for new products. The median income for Columbus is below that of the national average, about $44,000 at the 2010 census, compared to about $53,000 nationally.
The population of Columbus proper, is only about 825,000, but when the surrounding suburbs are added, the head count goes up to nearly 2.4 million. The population of Columbus is significantly younger than the population of Ohio as a whole, with only 8.6% of the population, compared to 14.1% for the state as a whole—and the country. The population is also among the most educated in the country, being ranked 15th in literacy by Central Connecticut State University and the 19th best educated. These factors combine to make Columbus one of the country's most livable cities.
The high education rate and relatively low age distribution probably significantly reduces the demand for denture dentists, since it is expected that the edentulous rate for Columbus is probably much lower than the 20% reported for the state.
Benefits of FOY® Dentures in Columbus, Ohio
There may also be less demand for a quality denture dentist because many of the local delicacies in Columbus are not hard to chew. With a significant German and East European population, much of the characteristic cuisine in Columbus is dedicated to sausages of different types. However, Columbusites are also interested in quality dining, with numerous food festivals throughout the year, such as the Columbus Restaurant Week. People enjoying these types of food events would probably appreciate the services of a good denture dentist so they can enjoy a wider variety of foods.
Columbus also has many dedicated sports fans. Although some don't exert themselves beyond turning on a Buckeyes game, other Columbusites can be seen out throwing the pigskin with their sons (and grandsons). The muscular stability offered by FOY® Dentures would probably be appreciated by these active families.
