HEALTHCARE PRACTICE BANKING: INSIGHTS

TOP 5 BUSINESS OBJECTIVES FOR INDEPENDENTLY-OWNED DENTAL PRACTICES IN 2016

2015 was a strong year for the U.S. dental industry. Based on our recent survey of almost 200 independently-owned dental practices, their owners are confident that 2016 will continue on the same path. However, optimism is tempered by trends in the market, including the rise of corporate chains and a cost-saving shift by many employers to less expensive insurance plans. Given this reality, independently-owned dental practices must focus on a few key areas to achieve desired growth and revenue goals in 2016.
