When I think about running a dental practice, I’m reminded of nurturing my garden. I have to tend to a lot of weeds to make sure that my beautiful flowers and vegetables can flourish. Running a dental practice also requires that you pull out those nasty weeds, fertilize the soil, and tend to the practice on a regular basis if you want to see the fruits of your hard work. The time and effort put into keeping things clean and organized will be rewarded with improved collections, increased production, and a much better idea of the health of your practice.
Vijay Sikka recently spoke to AAHA Trends about digital technology and the animal health industry. They discussed the ways in which apps are changing how veterinarians run the business side of their practices. This includes how API technology drives the accessibility of information and how an ecosystem helps practitioners find the specific tools they need. Plus, a discussion of some of the apps available today from Sikka and our partners.

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.
It’s always an excellent idea for dentists and team members to know what numbers are making an impact on their practice’s bottom line and to have some numbers from across the U.S. that they can use as a comparison to see how well, or not so well, they’re really doing.
As IgniteDA co-founder Kevin Henry often reminds dentists and team members during our monthly webinars, you aren’t just running a practice, you’re actually running a small business. Knowing your numbers is a key part of keeping that business successful.
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!
