Investing in your dental practice is one of the best financial and personal decisions you can make to attain new heights.
*The following examples are based on Alberta’s fee guide
1. CAPITALIZE on each dental hygienist having productive contributing days,
Direct revenue - $2200 (8 hour clinical day)
Indirect revenue - $1500
TOTAL contributing revenue - $3700 per day for one hygienist
2. MAXIMIZE on the daily clinical findings and the “next step” on every patient,
3. INSPIRE the dental team to create a periodontal department
Diagnosis + Treatment Plan + Clinical Skills = Highest Standards AAP/CAP
PERIODONTICS = PRACTICE BUILDER
These TWO CASES required 20 HOURS of hygiene chair time in ONE YEAR!!
Just imagine what needs to be “uncovered” in your practice!
