Dental Bites: Practice collections climb to 94.3% in 2014
Collections up 3% from 2013.
Analysis from Roger P. Levin, DDS: "We recommend practices collect 99% of all fees. The closer practices can get to this target, the more profitable the practice will be. Think of it this way … In an office generating $500,000 in revenue, for every 1% not collected, the practice loses $5,000. In the new dental economy, dentists have to do more with what they have. By improving collections even a few percentage points, practices can harvest additional revenue from services already provided."
