Using the Right Tools for Productivity and Profitability

Are you using the right tool for the job? When it comes to treating patients, we doubt you're just "making it work" with the wrong tools. You have your tools for each specific task, and those do the best job—giving you the results you're after.

Running your practice is no different. You need the right tools (and people) to ensure each task is completed efficiently. When you have the right tools at your disposal, your practice is productive and profitable.

How Much is Patient Loyalty Worth to Your Dental Practice?

When it comes to marketing and patient acquisition, finding out the costs associated and value of each patient is key to each practice. You'll need to drill down in your numbers to find out what each patient is bringing in and how much it cost to get them in the door. The tab32 dashboard makes it easy to access these numbers, but if you haven't started your practice yet, or you're brand new, it's impossible to grasp this data.

What we know, after years of building our cloud-based dental software and working with dentists is that the worth of your patient loyalty (and the effort you needs to put into building that loyalty) cannot be overstated, or underestimated. It is only to your detriment to ignore these key pieces of information.

5 Ways to Keep Your Staff on Track

Even if you've been in business for several years, your practice will benefit from this exercise.

But what happens when you share the mission and vision with your staff, but things aren't working? And how can you tell if your practice is straying (minorly or majorly) from these overarching, driving principles? You must be able to identify that your practice is getting off track. Here are a few symptoms:

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. Being frugal in your startup costs means less money paid to the bank and more in your pocket or to reinvest in the practice.
