A decade ago, it was hard to know where to start.
The beauty industry was a small one, with a few dozen or so specialty clinics that specialized in a handful of specialty areas, but in the early 2000s, there were fewer than 500.
Today, there are more than 3,000, and the industry has exploded, with more than $3 billion in annual revenue and more than 150,000 registered medical beauty practitioners.
And it’s still growing, with the number of patients, prescriptions filled, and treatments coming on stream.
The beauty industry is about to become even bigger.
In January, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced the creation of the American Beauty Institute, a $250 million initiative that will provide an umbrella for the industry’s health professionals to promote beauty and wellness.
The institute is also planning to bring together an international coalition of beauty professionals and advocates, which will include the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the National Association of Plastic Dentists, the Society of Cosmetic Surgeons and the American College of Cosmetic and Laser Surgeons.
“We are very excited about this new initiative,” said Sarah Smith, the president of the Cosmetic Dentists of America.
“It’s important to us that we get a sense of what is being accomplished, because it can inform future legislation.
We think this is a really good way to start that conversation.”
It’s no surprise that the beauty industry has grown.
In 2011, the number in the United States grew by 20% from the previous year.
More than 3 million Americans were expected to see cosmetic dentistry services in 2020, according to a report released by the American Dental Association (ADA).
And the beauty and dental communities are growing at a pace that will continue to accelerate.
In 2014, the industry was expected to spend $1.2 billion on health services, which is roughly equivalent to the size of the economy of Georgia.
Today it spends more than twice that, and its impact is already spreading across the country.
According to the ADA, about 60% of the nation’s population is over the age of 65, and about 10% of people are under 65.
The U. S. population is projected to grow by more than 6 million by 2030.
According to the National Center for Health Statistics, there will be 1.3 million more people over the next five years than there are now, with an estimated 3.7 million people under age 65.
“I’m really excited about the opportunities that this industry is providing for the country,” said Dr. Karen A. Sargent, CEO of the California-based National Association for Cosmetic Dentist.
“There are a lot of people working in the cosmetic dentists profession, and it’s really a great place to be.
There are a ton of benefits to being a cosmetic dentist.”
The beauty community is not only making money from its services, but it’s also expanding in a way that is directly related to the Affordable Care Act.
According the ADA’s 2014 report, the health of a population is directly correlated to their overall health, which can be influenced by a number of factors including access to health care and a healthier lifestyle.
“When you look at the dental community, if you look back at where we were in 2006, we’re a very different place today,” said Smith.
“The cosmetic dentist profession is one of the oldest and largest in the country, but we are really seeing the dental profession evolve and grow in a really positive way.”
Sargent is the president and CEO of New York City-based Cosmetic Dentics of America, a private dental practice that is one part of the National Cosmetic Dental Society.
She said the industry needs to be focused on getting people healthy.
“In order to do well in the industry, you have to be aware of the health issues that are out there and you have have to stay healthy,” she said.
“That’s why we started with our own cosmetic dentistries and now we are expanding to all areas of the industry.”
The cosmetic dentist workforce is also growing, but there are also new jobs opening up.
According a report by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average salary for a cosmetic dental assistant is $36,000.
And although that number is still lower than the national average, it is more than double the median salary for an associate.
In addition, there is a growing need for health care workers. According
