As the country enters it’s final phases of reopening, the practice of dentistry is getting back in sync. Checkout the latest post from ADA News which states that 1 in 10 practices are back to business as usual. https://www.ada.org/en/publications/ada-news/2020-archive/june/jtf-june-1-2020
In many ways, I believe that we will come out of this better and stronger. With a renewed focus on safety for all, there likely isn’t a dental practice owner out there who hasn’t come to the realization that their chair time is valuable. I believe it’s value is greater than ever before.
What does this mean? It’s a huge call to action
- To have a greater understanding of our practice numbers, specifically, our cost of doing business and what the practice must collect per hour for the owners to receive compensation
- To kindly and lovingly raise our standards with patients who do not value our chair time and do not keep their appointments
- To be intentional and proactive in how we structure our schedule so that each and every day we can not only be safe, we have a more “high-value” schedule.
