The Periodontal Perspective
- Envision this:
- Patient flow is no
longer a concern and your practice is profitable again! Your production
has increased, your overhead is reduced, you have spare cash and funding
your retirement plan becomes feasible.
- You are very busy
doing the type of work that gives you the most satisfaction. There
is finally an aesthetic treatment for which your surgical skills are
a perfect fit.
- There are no insurance
companies setting fees, trying to dictate treatment, losing records,
holding up treatment, delaying payments, etc. You and your patients
are no longer casualties of managed care.
- Your patient
population has changed and is now mostly healthy younger adults and
Your practice is "aesthetics driven" because you are giving
your patients what they want – "a beautiful smile".
- Treating disease,
although still important, has become a much less significant part of
your practice. You no longer need to resort to heroics to get by.
- Your source
of patients has changed dramatically. Your referral base is mostly
scenario. "Word of Mouth" is actually having a positive impact
on your practice and patient referrals are becoming much more commonplace.
- You did not need
to spend even a penny on new instrumentation. Nor will you need to
be constantly upgrading your instrumentation.
- You have completed
the certification course and the financing package is available to
you so that you can also receive payment prior to treatment. Collections
have ceased to be a concern.
have finally realized that most patients are more willing to pay for
improved aesthetics rather than to treat periodontal disease.
