Compare Your Practice to 2,000 Practices in 4 Specific Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s)

with Weston Lunsford - Episode 300

It is absolutely critical to measure performance in your dental practice. However, your practice management software only tells you ‘what happened’ as opposed to ‘what’s happening’.

Running Time: 64:42 minutes

To help you better understand what is happening in your dental practice, Gary invited his friend Weston Lunsford on the Thriving Dentist Show to discuss 4 specific metrics that will propel your practice to new levels of performance! In this Show, Gary and Weston discuss the concept of ‘things that are measured, improve’ and then focus on 4 very specific metrics that you MUST measure to achieve your full potential. These 4 metrics are:

Hygiene Patient Reappointment %

Dentist Production per Patient

Treatment Acceptance %

Unscheduled Active Patients

Weston then provides you with benchmark information from 2,000 practices showing you the average, top 10% and bottom 10% of each metric in this 2,000 practice database. This benchmark information allows you to see how your practice performs compared to these 2,000 practices! You will LOVE Weston’s passion for measuring KPI’s and his equal passion for helping Dentists better serve their patients.
