Hygiene production makes up around 30% of a practice’s production, so it benefits you to make sure you’re properly tracking it! To learn more, listen to the podcast or read a transcript of the audio.
Fee setting can be one of the biggest challenges a dental practice faces. Without benchmarking data, it can be difficult to set competitive fees, maximize revenue and negotiate with the dental insurance companies.
Join Kevin Henry and Teresa Duncan, M.S. of Odyssey Consulting on August 14th as we unveil the fee trends you need to know.

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!

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.

What is your net production per hour? How about for your hygienists? You might have a rough idea of these numbers, but knowing these data can help you pinpoint what’s going right and wrong with your practice.
Most of us in dentistry have certain ideas about how dental hygiene services should be integrated into the practice of dentistry. But preconceived notions are just that, notions. I decided I needed to use facts instead to examine the state of hygiene and dentist production in the U.S.
