Cutting just 10 minutes of time per hour can lead to years of extra production time in the long run, noted Dr. Roger P. Levin in the latest episode of Dental Practice Made Simple. That means reducing the time it takes to become financially independent or retire.
"Dentists, in a sense, sell time," Levin said. "Every hour isn't the same amount, but we only have so much time. We only have so much chair time."
Levin advised finding the average time it takes to do each procedure in your practice with the goal of cutting 10 minutes per hour. In a practice with a four-day week, those extra minutes add up to 32 days per year in new chairside services in just one year.
