The shift from traditional dentistry to cosmetic dentistry is due to adults getting fewer cavities and becoming more conscious of their looks.
GMAT Rule tested: Due to modifies a noun; because of modifies verb
(A) dentistry to cosmetic dentistry is due to adults getting fewer cavities and becoming wrong as 'Due to' is modifying a verb- adults getting
(B) dentistry to cosmetic dentistry is happening because fewer adults are getting cavities and they are also becoming
this says that fewer adults are getting cavities, but the right answer must convey - adults are getting fewer cavities
(C) dentistry to cosmetic dentistry is because of adults who are getting both fewer cavities and becoming
because of is modifying noun- adults (wrong)
(D) dentistry to cosmetic dentistry is taking place because adults are getting fewer cavities and are also becoming
every thing is just perfect- answer coveys that adults are getting fewer cavities and because id modifying the right verb
(E) dentistry to cosmetic dentistry occurs because of adults getting fewer cavities and becomes
because is rightly in place, but 'becomes' is awkward, it must be replaced with becoming

Consider giving Kudos if you learnt something from the above explanation

In option D we have "and are also"- isn't it redundant?

"are" is required after "and", inorder to make the list parallel.

I am no expert, but let me give it a try.

The shift is not "caused by" the adults, in fact, the shift is caused because of the reducing # of cases of cavities and the growing knowledge of personal care.
The causation has to be logical.

For example:
The accident due to pothole in the road was horrifying. --> This makes sense, since the accident was caused by the pothole.
The fashion trends are not static due to celebrities changing style. --> This is nonsensical, since the fashion trends are not static not because of the "celebrities" themselves, but because of the changing style of celebrities.

Hope that helps.
