So how is your practice doing when it comes to the number of active patients on your books? If your practice anything like the national average, your numbers are on the rise.
Despite tales of patients who may not be returning to the practice or those who are falling off the books for reasons such as relocation or inactivity, Sikka Software data suggests that today’s dental practice has more active patients than the dental practice at the start of this decade.
We recently combed through data from Sikka’s collection of numbers taken from Sikka Software that has been logged from more than 12,500 dental practices from around the United States. For definition’s sake in this article, an active patient is a patient who has visited the practice in the last 18 months.
