Compared to other dental and specialty offices, ortho practices tend to have larger staffs, more chairs, and a higher volume of patients seen every day. This means that the total cash flow tends to be relatively high, which can make monitoring and controlling overhead more challenging.Here are some suggestions for making sure excess spending isn’t cutting into your profits and income.
Ortho practices will always need to contend with upward pressures on the cost of doing business. But, with these and other sound approaches to controlling overhead, you can keep more of what you earn and enjoy greater practice success.
Attend Dr. Levin’s new ortho seminar, Building the Ultimate Ortho Practice, on March 31 in Tampa, tuition-free. Ask your Ortho2 Regional Manager how you can receive an educational grant. Go to www.levingroup.com/orthoseminars to see dates and locations for all ortho seminars in 2017.
