So how much is a new patient worth to a dental practice? There are plenty of numbers floating out there that tackle this subject, but we thought we’d use some hard data to tackle it from a different perspective.
To find these numbers, we took data from Sikka Software that has been compiled over the last seven years. The data we are using for this comparison has been collected by Sikka Software from more than 12,500 dental practices from around the country.
The numbers below reflect the gross production per patient who was seen for a comprehensive exam. Comprehensive exams are one of the best ways to indicate a patient who is new to the practice.
