Are you or is someone in your practice a “statistic-phobe?”

Too often practice owners and office managers “think” or “feel” like everything is going well in the practice, but they have nothing concrete to back up their feelings.

Often, folks would rather look the other way than dive into the facts and figures behind their dental practice. For example, when it comes to A/R:

  • What are your typically “bad months”? Not sure…you should be.
  • If you do know what months are worse for you, do you know what to do about it?
  • What parts of the systems you have in place are NOT working?
  • What are the numbers supposed to be?
  • What’s the 90-day number supposed to be?

NEA Powered by Vyne welcomes well-known dental consultant, Cindy Ishimoto as she shares best practices for tracking your practice’s trends and how to use those facts and figures to your advantage.

This is Part 1 of 2-Part series, so be sure to also register for Part 2 of this webinar. Don’t miss out! Mark your calendar for Tuesday, May 16, 2017 at NOON ET and Tuesday, June 20, 2017 at NOON ET.
