How to Increase Your Bottom Line

Posted on April 23, 2014 by Sandy Pardue

Do you know the best and easiest way to increase your bottom line or profit? Itʹs by not having open time on your appointment book, which is achieved by eliminating broken appointments and controlling your schedule. For every broken appointment and time left unfilled on the schedule, your bottom line decreases to that degree. This is true in the hygiene column and especially true in the doctorʹs column.

Better scheduling will allow you to see extra patients every day which can culminate into much larger revenues. There is no other secret. Itʹs ʺIncrease your bottom line with fewer broken appointments and no open time on the book!ʺ Though expenses enter into the picture, donʹt be concerned with trivial matters like trying to save money on supplies. This is only a drop in the bucket compared to what that lost time is costing you. Most people count the dollars going out instead of the lack of dollars coming in.

Staff members must really understand this and know that their salary and the upcoming raise they expect depends on this. But the doctor must realize it first. If you want to make a good living, whether doctor or staff, this is what it all boils down to. May the force be with you!
