This will have 4 immediate impacts:
1) Improved Patient Outcomes: Many aspects of overall health are tied to oral health. Bringing patients in for hygiene visits ensures that oral health issues which can also have an impact on whole body health can get flagged. This helps improve patient outcomes both for oral and whole body health and fulfill your 'duty-of-care' responsibility - and obligation.
2) Increased Production and Collections: Increased hygiene traffic will boost treatment opportunities. An upturn in hygiene visits will increase not just the hygiene revenue but also the treatment revenue associated with the hygiene visit. This will increase your monthly production, and therefore, collection numbers.
3) Accrue Higher Margin Revenue: The increase in collection will be higher-margin revenue than you currently accrue. Since your overheads are (largely) already fixed, the incremental cost of bringing back these elusive patients - what you pay us - will be a trivial part of the incremental revenue accrued - what you will earn from the hard-to-reach patients we bring back. Consequently, what you earn from these patients will have a larger impact on your bottom line than it currently does.
4) Increase in Practice Value: Over the long term, an increase in monthly production and collections will result in a higher practice valuation.
