Amy Deschamps has over 25 years in dentistry working in every aspect except as a doctor or hygienist. She was one of the top consultants at Mercer for a number of years. She’s recently built a practice management consulting firm that focuses on 4 major metrics within the dental practice. Those being:

1. Facility
2. Team
3. Patient Base
4. Schedule

During this episode Amy shares key insight on how your schedule should be better balanced by effectively analyzing and using your PPO numbers. According to Amy building a schedule is more than just having a balance of procedures. A profitable schedule factors in a balance with PPO fees. While profits is not the number one criteria in providing dental care, it does have a lot to do with protecting the financial integrity of quality care.
