To effectively manage a dental practice for profitability is imperative that you retain relationships with existing patients, reduce no shows, keep schedules full, collect treatment fees, and attract new patients.
In order to achieve these operational objectives your practice has likely developed a comprehensive, and perhaps complicated, set of systems to manage your daily activities. This most likely includes systems that address scheduling, appointment reminders and confirmations, education, retention, collections, patient feedback and more. As a busy dental practice with many patients to see each day, it can be easy to focus on patient flow and daily operations and allow the consistent implementation of these important systems to slide. This may have a significant negative impact on your productivity and profitability.
