- Need more HYGIENE days due to a COVID BACKLOG?
- Scrambling to move your staff around to cover open positions?
- Canceling patients because you’re short staffed?
- Does your bottom line suffer because everyone is overextended?
Would you SPEND $112.50 in temporary staffing a day, TO ADD $2,300 to $5,200 to Daily production?
Our dedicated recruiters have been actively recruiting dental professionals to assist dental practices catch up on the backlog of patients resulting from the COVID shut down. More often than not we hear “temporary services” are too expensive. The case studies below will begin to show you that your practice CANNOT AFFORD not to utilize staffing agencies.
Case Study #1
Dr Black’s practice pays his hygienist $29 per hour. One day his hygienist called in sick- a day that was fully booked with patients. In calling Strategic Dental Staffing Solutions [SDSS] they only spent $112 more than they would have paid their own hygienist. The temporary hygienist had $1,000 in daily production and generated $2,500 in treatment for Dr Black. Bringing the daily production total to $3,500. Had they canceled out the day, they would have lost out on the $3,500. [Refer to chart 1.1].
Case Study #2
Dr Smith’s office pays their hygienist 30% of net production. They built a schedule to accommodate patients due to the covid shutdown- but did not have a hygienist to cover the shift. Strategic Dental Staffing Solutions [SDSS] provided them with a dental hygienist. Interestingly enough, the scheduled hygiene production ended up totalling $1,100 and generated over $3,500 in treatment for Dr Smith.
Dr Smith paid SDSS $318.50 for the staffing coverage. As you can see from Chart 1.2, Dr Smith saved $11.50 that day. He would have paid one of his hygienists $ 330.00 rather than the $318.50 he paid out to SDSS. Chart 1.2 also shows how the savings would increase, as the scheduled hygiene production increases.
