Units of Dental Business


I’ve been playing around with “units of dental business” and have started to construct a simple spreadsheet to show the effect of days worked and average daily production.

I’m assuming that, up to £1m in sales, you can maintain a 30% net profit margin but that after that, profits decline as a percentage as “people costs” increase.

My conclusion is that, for a private GDP doing high-value work, its better to focus on improving productivity in a 3-surgery practice than it is to add surgeries.

I’d love to hear your comments.

Visit my blog to download the spreadsheet and play.
