Accelerate Your DSO’s Profitability – Build Your Brand by Offering Unique Solutions

Sponsored Content

Want to increase your DSO’s practice profits? By offering unique solutions to common periodontal problems, you can. DSOs can increase revenue through organic growth via new services and products.

The key to supercharging practice profitability is that the entire team must be highly motivated to implement at-home care for patients, improving both the patients’ health and the practice’s bottom line.

In addition to improving the patient experience, new products and services also increase practice valuation, add business resilience, differentiates the dental group and provides a competitive advantage. The periodontal protocol must be effective, easy to implement and organized in a way that offers predictable profitability.

Protocol for nonsurgical periodontal therapy

Below is an example of practice revenue streams of periodontal protocols. Included is a list of highly validated, therapeutic services which are considered the highest quality care in the treatment of early periodontal disease.

Practices can expect to see profitable returns when offering additional products to their patients in alignment with best practices for care. In the following table, scenarios for revenue generation are depicted around treatment of early periodontal disease and products for better patient self-care.

Using the periodontal protocol featured above, a practice can produce $1700 after expenses. If a clinician performed one periodontal treatment a week on a patient presenting with 3-5mm pockets, easy bleeding, and early bone loss using these protocols, the practice could expect to see revenue of $81,000/year. If a clinician performed one case a day and worked 192 days/year (which is the average), that would produce an additional $326,400/year.
