I posted an article about measuring orthodontic efficiency in your practice. If you haven’t taken my challenge, please click https://www.straightsmilesolutions.com/blog/challenge/ before you proceed with the rest of the blogs in this series.
If your margin isn’t at least enough on each case, you aren’t doing it efficiently. You should be profiting at least $1500-$2000 on each case. If you aren’t, read on. I’ll be talking about ways to take back control of the profitability of your orthodontic cases by leveraging technology to reduce chair time and lab fees.
I’ve been preaching remote consults and remote aligner check-ins for years with my StraightSmile Solutions® clients. This is not at all DIY or DTC dentistry. It’s actually quite the opposite. It’s just reducing unnecessary chair time and increasing efficiency in your practice.
Dental Monitoring® (DM) is launching a myriad of programs to increase the ROI in your aligner, braces and functional appliance patients. I attended their symposium in Las Vegas this month, and we previewed some of the new products and features that will officially be launched at AAO in May. Today we’ll be focusing on DM Stability®.
This is a new retention-for–life program that is being supported by DM®. Retention is low-hanging fruit for doctors and the opportunity is often dismissed and patients are neglected. Doctors can pay extra for this optional program, but it creates an additional revenue stream. You’ll be able to use the existing DM® services to monitor your patient during the retention period and intervene as soon as the retention starts to need intervention using the app and the doctor dashboard. Doctors may or may not access an additional fee to the service for their patient.
If you’d like to learn more about DM Vision®, be sure to visit AAO in Los Angeles in May or connect with the Dental Monitoring® team. You can email me for an introduction.
