How to Keep Your Dental Practice Startup Costs Down

When you are starting out to launch your new practice, banks will be there offering you LOTS of money. The average cost (according to Bank of America) of a new dental practice is upwards of $450,000! They know that dental practices are a great investment and that they will make more money if they can get you to take a bigger loan. What they don't know is that you're smarter than that! You want to be profitable sooner, and spend less money paying the interest on your loan. While you can't completely eliminate your startup costs, you can be mindful of how and where you spend your money.

We understand the line you have to walk in your practice. You have to see enough patients to make a profit, without making the patients feel like they're in a factory. Nothing could be worse for you, your staff, and your patients than being rushed through every day watching the clock and pushing patients through. That's not what you want, and it's definitely not what your patients want.

But how can you meet your productivity needs and make a profit while still treating each patient as an individual? The answer is efficiency. Ensuring your practice runs at maximum efficiency is how you can have the best of both worlds: productivity and patient relationships.
