Practice profitability continues to rise at alarming levels. A recent study reported that the average solo General Dentist practice had 74% overhead! If that is the case for you, then you are working too hard for too little. In this Thriving Dentist Show Gary interviews his friend Dr. Jonathan Afshari on the topic of the low overhead practice. Jonathan is a self-made young Dentist who own 4 practices all built on the low overhead model. While Jonathan’s practices are low overhead, he takes pride in delivering quality treatment with excellent patient service. In this interview, Gary and Jonathan discuss; specific cost savings hacks and ninja tricks to lower overhead, the role that technology plays in the low overhead practice, how automation is an important key to a low overhead practice and how all of this leads to a quality lifestyle.
