When you increase your treatment plan acceptance rate you prevent a small problem cavity today, from turning into a bigger problem root canal or extraction in the future. When you offer same day dentistry patients are very motivated to do it today so they don’t have to come back. If the patient fails to schedule and come back your treatment plan acceptance rate goes down and the disease continues on which is not optimum for oral health. The only secret to lower prices is lower cost so to maximize profit make every operatory the same so you can do any procedure, in any room, anytime. When 35% of cost is the dentist, 25% staff, 7-10% lab, 4-6% supplies, you can’t afford for your business to slow down or stop because of a constraint from the lower cost rent and facilities of 5-8%. When you have to move a patient from a hygiene room to a treatment room it cost time and money often times causing you to reschedule. Not to mention the front desk can’t schedule emergency patients or walk-ins. Extra operatories are not overhead, they are your means of production. When your over head is $1 and you produce and collect $1 then your overhead is 100%. Raise your production to $2 and now it’s down to 50%. Increase the number of your dental operatories until you never find yourself waiting for a room. In fact the biggest ground breaking technology in dentistry was the shovel when used to build a new, bigger and better serval office.
