Your dental practice was created as a business to help improve the oral health of your patients. But you can’t serve your patients and thrive as a practice unless you have an idea how your practice is doing.
Sikka Software has just compiled data from more than 13,000 dental practices throughout the U.S. in more than 70 different categories within the practice. In this two-part series, I’ve looked at 10 key metrics and boiled down the nationwide averages for the last seven years. Part 1 examined aspects of hygiene, preventive, and doctor production along with the number of active patients.
For the first time, Sikka Software will be releasing its latest data on dental practices around the country for the year 2017.
What was the average gross production for the dentist and hygienist? What were the average number of new patients per practice? How about the average AR carried before and after 90 days? These questions and more will be answered and dissected.
Join Kevin Henry and Dayna Johnson on July 17 as we unveil this critical information!

When I’m working with a dental practice, I want to see the big picture, the 37,000-foot view of the practice, so I can see where to start a conversation. Numbers tell a story, such as what systems need tweaking and where the practice is excelling.
I visited a practice in Washington state recently, and it had been several years since I’d worked with them. The doctor had hired a couple of new team members and he thought it was a good time for me to do some team training. I started with the Practice Advisor Report in his Dentrix software to see where the training should take us. He had never looked at this report, so I gave him a rundown on what it would reveal. One of the numbers was his office’s patient retention.
“Who may we thank for referring you to our practice?” I asked in a friendly voice. “I met your doctor at his ice cream social” was the reply. I was the marketing director and I knew we had never participated in an ice cream social. When I asked the doctor, he said he had no idea what the patient was talking about.
About an hour later, another call came in with the same answer. “I met your doctor at his ice cream social.” I asked the doctor again and he still didn’t have any idea what the patients were talking about. There was even a third person that called.
