It has become much more difficult for Dentists to control practice overhead to appropriate levels. If you are a regular listener to the Thriving Dentist Show you likely know that Gary’s goal for your practice overhead is no higher than 60%. In this Show, Gary interviews his friend Kim Bleiweiss on the topic of controlling your inventory costs. This is a very important topic because many Dentists are wasting money by carrying too much inventory or losing money because very expensive inventory is expiring on the shelf. In this interview Gary and Kim discuss why an inventory control system is so important, an appropriate budget for inventory expenses, common inventory mistakes and how to avoid them, the benefits and features of the inventory system that Kim developed and how an inventory control system will bring you peace of mind and improved profitability.
