194. Mastering Case and Patient Acceptance for Dental Practice Success

On this episode of The Daily Dental Podcast, your host delves into the crucial metrics of case acceptance and patient acceptance. These terms are differentiated, with case acceptance measured in dollar amounts and patient acceptance as a percentage. Dr. Addison Killeen emphasizes the significance of these metrics for gauging practice success, setting benchmarks of 30-40% for case acceptance and commending rates around 80% for patient acceptance. Dr. Killeen’s practical examples highlight the impact of assertive treatment planning and the need for patient education or improved financing options. Dr. Killeen introduces BlueIQ software as an excellent tool for tracking and analyzing these metrics, encouraging listeners to strive for a balance between financial success and patient satisfaction in their dental practices.
