5 statistics critical to every successful dental practice
Dental Practice Management
Dayna Johnson writes, "Numbers tell a story. Knowing the right numbers to monitor and why you are monitoring them can be the challenging part, especially the 'why.' I was recently teaching a seminar in Seattle and we were talking about what reports the doctor or accountant requests from the team on a monthly basis.
