3 Hygiene Fundamentals You Should Focus On

Hygiene Profitability

Today we are going to talk about some ways to increase hygiene production. Today’s technique involves focusing on achieving some fundamental results.

You may ask: “Why are fundamentals so important?” Consider the fact that professional athletes still do the same fundamental drills they learned when they were just 10 years old. As dental professionals, we should approach our craft with the same diligence.

Have your practice follow this simple three step formula and it will yield dramatic results:

1.) Get 90% acceptance of Adult Fluoride

  • For example, an 80% acceptance in fluoride =

$32,000+ per hygienist over the next year

2.) Use Sealants

  • For example, just four sealants a day =

$34,000 over the next year

3.) Use Desensitizing Agents

  • For example, treating four teeth a day with desensitizing agents =

$34,000 over the next year

Even if your practice is implementing some of these ideas already, have you reached the level of mastery where you are consistently getting these kind of results?

In our economy, it is all about maximizing the resources that we already have. Just by going back to basics, with just one hygienist you’ll see an increase of more than $100,000 a year.
