Practice Success Do

Analyze production per hour. Understanding practice production per hour gives you an overall analysis of the quality of your scheduling system and practice efficiency. The best way to increase production per hour is to implement or upgrade practice management systems in the office. If production per hour is not increasing annually, then the practice may be plateauing or even in danger of decline.

Practice Success Dont

Don't forget to analyze production per provider. Many dentists simply think about the overall practice production and do not break it down on a per-provider basis. It is important to know how each provider is performing relative to production and then make adjustments moving forward. It is not necessary or recommended for all providers to have the same production, but it is important to have a plan and a goal for each.
