Please see the “Dental Resources” section in the right hand column of this blog for information on companies that I have used with great results in developing my dental practices. From time to time, I will highlight a few of these businesses here.
Udell Webb’s fee analyzer helped me to determine my initial fees at the onset of my dental practices. The UCR fee analyzer uses data collected from dental insurance companies regarding the fees submitted by dentists in a specific geographical region. The zip code segregation provides accurate information about fees charged by neighboring dentists. On the analyzer, fees are assigned a percentile based on the percentage of fees submitted by dentists that fall below them. For example, if your submitted fee is assigned the 80th percentile, it means that 80% of fees submitted by other dentists in your area are below yours and 20% are above yours.
In my years of dentistry, I have ordered thousands of imprinted toothbrushes to give away to my patients. I have tried several different companies, but have found the best prices and quality with a smaller company named Dental Elite. They make the ordering process simple and I am always happy with their product.
At the beginning of this year, my office switched web hosting companies. While quality, low-cost web hosting isn’t one of the first needs a dentist would list, moving my websites to a new host has had significant benefits for my practice this year. InMotion Hosting now hosts several of my websites for one low yearly fee. They provide an easy to navigate control panel with website editing tools. This has allowed for my business manager to make simple changes to the websites for a fraction of what a typical website designer charges. The customer service at InMotion Hosting is exemplary. They answer questions quickly and in language that someone outside of the Internet industry can understand.
