Observation and Commentary On the Dental Industry

Fees Spike in 2006

Posted by dentalinsider on December 7, 2006

According to the Dental Practice Report’s exclusive fee survey,
dental fees posted their largest annual increase- 8.35% overall. The article has a chart of 98 procedures that shows National Median Average, % Change from 2005 and 1999 and Top, 2nd, 3rd and Bottom Quartile. Very useful information for a dental practice to determine if they need to raise their fees.

In addition to the fee survey, Dr. John Flucke writes an article on Blogs and Podcasts. Although he doesn’t mention The Dental Insider Blog or Dental insider Podcast, he does mention Dr. David Dodell’s www.dentalcast.net as a source for dental podcasts where you can earn CE credits for listening.

You can subscribe for the free print magazine at:
Dental Products.net
At the time of this writing, their website is a bit outdated showing August 2006 as the current issue. It’s too bad you cant read the entire magazine online.

    Just a small tip from a fellow blogger – if you want to generate traffic to your site you need to update it 1-2 times a day, not once a week. People don’t like to check sites that aren’t updated frequently. Your information is very good when you post it though…

    Thanks for the advice and compliment…unfortunately, the dental industry is unlike tech where things happen daily.

    Thanks

    What? No comments on how the DOCTORS are raising fees??
    We sure hear enough about the big suppliers who are looking to put the dentists out of business.

    Maybe this is a direct result of the big guys swimming in profits, right?
