How can I improve my dental practice?
One of the most important keys to profitability for your dental practice is to know the number of active patients that you and your staff can support and to reach a high utilization rate of that capacity as quickly as possible. In other words, if your practice can support 1,500 active patients, you don’t want to spend much time with only 1,000 active patients. You should aggressively market your practice in order to reach that higher capacity utilization rate as quickly as you are able to and still generate positive cash flow.
