The month of March will close out your first quarter of the year. Are you happy with how your collection, production, new patient, and patient retention numbers are trending? If not, now is the perfect time to make some adjustments.
March is an especially important month to work on not only being productive and happy but to successfully see to it that 100% of your hygiene continuing care patients schedule their next 6-month appointment. Why? Six months from March is September and for many, it can be a slower month. Your reappointment percentage in March will have a direct impact on what your schedule looks like in March.
Do you know what your reappointment percentages look like each month? Do you know how many of your active patients have a future appointment and how many are unscheduled? Those are smart numbers to track.
The practice management and leadership tips and ideas for March 2022 when implemented, will help you close out the first quarter strong.
