Calculate the operating cost per surgery per day.
This includes everything except lab costs, material costs or
associate, therapist, hygienist fees and your personal drawings.
Divide that total annual operating cost by the number
of surgery days you are able to oﬀer to
the public each year.
Add a percentage proﬁt to that number, representing
the cash you need to generate from the room
after the fee-earner, lab and materials have been paid
- but to generate some proﬁt for you.
Calculate the average daily production of each of
your fee-earners. Take into account nominal daily
UDB value, nominal daily membership scheme value
and actual fee per item sales.
Run your fee-earner’s production
through the numbers, pay them, the
lab and materials, apply the percentages
- and see what is left.
Every chair in your dental practice is a Unit of Dental Business
– this will help you to calculate your required practice productivity.
If the answer is lower than your target cash is
less than Step 3 you have a problem.
