Creating a Profitable Hygiene Department
Expectation. It's key in creating a profitable hygiene department. The very simple reality is that clearly communicated expectation and the duties associated with it produce results for you, your practice, and your patients. If you're hygiene department isn't generating revenue, it's time to reevaluate with a consultation from Kathleen Johnson Consulting.
Profitable Hygiene Departments are a Team Effort!
Often, there are disconnections between the doctor, the hygienist, the team, and even the patient. Your hygienist does more than clean teeth; they promote good oral health, develop solid relationships, and help create the value in dental treatment far beyond teeth cleaning. Without an understanding of and commitment to the same objectives, your hygiene department can't reach its full potential.
- Have you properly communicated your expectations and goals to your hygienist?
- Do you have a thorough understanding of your hygienist's day-to-day duties?
- Have you created the right relationship between the hygiene department, the front desk, and patient retention?
- Are you conveying the right message of value and urgency to your patients?
