Overview

Every business or industry has one metric that is more important than all others. In dentistry that metric is production. Production tells more about a practice than any other single statistic and is the major factor in overall practice success. Production is not simply one number on a spreadsheet. There are multiple aspects to the concept of dental practice production that are essential to understand and incredibly helpful when seeking to successfully manage a practice. This course will provide a new perspective on practice production.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course, the dental professional should be able to:


  • Understand why production is the single most important metric in regard to dental practice performance. Moreover, be able to evaluate how to use production ratios to understand strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities in the practice.
  • Learn production ratios and their direct implications about practice performance. Ratios include examples like production per day, production per hour, production per provider, production per patient and production per new patient. These are critical statistics that all practices need to track and monitor.
  • Review numerous examples of opportunities to increase practice production, broken up into categories relative to production ratios. These strategies can be quickly implemented by practices to increase practice production and maintain overall practice financial success.
