DENTAL PRODUCTION INDEX 2007, 2009, 2010, 2011
|How does your practice compare? Our Dental Production Index tracks practice trends Per Doctor for the same set of practices over three years so the results are comparable. (These are all stable, predominantly fee-for-service practices with more than 5 years in practice.) Now you’ll have the most reliable dental index in the profession!
A few comments: Note that we have added data for 2007. Also, we have added an additional chart to show the Year-To-Date Cumulative average charges. 2011 production for November is greater than the other three years! The cumulative figure has pulled ahead of 2009 and 2010.
So, what if your numbers fall outside these averages? How does this info affect you and your income – and quality of life? The up or down trend is more important than the actual dollars. If you are following the same trends, then that may give you some comfort. Continue to do what seems to be working. If not, consider what may need fixing—and perhaps give us a call for some ideas.
