There is a lot of pressure on clinics and laboratories to improve performance and increasing efficiency is top priority. AvaDent helps you to increase production and growth of your business without increasing overhead costs.
Utilizing the AvaDent digital denture workflow, the skilled dental technician will save significant time on lab work and will be able to increase his workload up to 500%. This digital lab technician will be responsible for scanning and quality control for the digitally outsourced production of the denture.
The technician will have the opportunity to review a digital design of the denture and make changes when needed. When the final digital denture is fabricated, the technician will check the quality and send it to the dentist. The technician’s workflow will change to focus more on controlling and monitoring the outcome, than making the denture by hand.
The AvaDent digital workflow creates great opportunities to manage dental lab overhead by supporting more customers with the same staffing levels, and with a premium product. In the past denture labs have always struggled with getting and keeping more customers…until now.
For dental practices the amount of chair time can been reduced by over 50%. The AvaDent digital workflow also creates the opportunity to manage practice overhead by supporting more patients with the same staffing levels, and with a premium product.
Another advantage is that when the workload decreases for a period of time, it automatically will result in lower outsourcing costs during that time. The result is a higher, more stable and predictable profit and while controlling overhead.
As an owner or manager of a modern denture lab or practice, the decision is yours to make. Changing your business model to a digital workflow can give you better results and more staffing flexibility. Denture outsourcing with AvaDent will increase your volume per dental technician and increases the volume per hour chair time.
In today’s denture market, existing denture patients are willing to pay more for a denture that fits better and has more natural esthetics. In order to accommodate the desires of these patients, along with others, dentists have been offering two types of dentures; economy and premium. Some of the differences between the two are price, quality of materials and the method of fabrication.
Economy dentures today are the most affordable dentures on the market. In fact there are many businesses out there that cater to this market segment. These economy dentures typically require multiple patient visits for realignment issues and adjustments to achieve an acceptable fit. The profitability of the economy denture is eroded because of these additional patient appointments.
Premium dentures today are being digitally designed and milled using CAE (computer aided engineering) technology. These dentures are milled out of a preshrunk acrylic puck therefore allowing them to produce a denture that has a 1:1 fit to the patient’s impression.
Because these innovative acrylic pucks are preshrunk, the final product will have a fit that is second to none. These high quality dentures can be enhanced with custom characterization for increased natural esthetics for the patient.
Since these dentures fit and look better, the amount of follow up visits for the patient is significantly reduced due to the patient’s overall satisfaction. On average, the price of a premium denture is three times that of an economy denture. When you factor in the efficiency of reduced number of appointments and this higher price point, premium dentures can generate more profit for you and your practice or lab.
Dentures build your patients’ comfort and confidence but also the practice’s bottom-line. Creating premium dentures used to be very time consuming and costly, with low profits as a result. However, recent advances in the field make it possible for your denture practice or lab profitability to be what it could and should be.
However, most denture professionals have become frustrated with the old techniques learned in dental school. Those exhaustingly extensive procedures are still followed in the dental office and laboratory.
Sometimes four or more doctor hours are spent, all the while producing a denture that so often is rejected by the patient. Five or six appointments are often needed, possibly followed by after-treatment adjustments.
Think that business model maximizes your denture practice or labs profitability? Time to review the biggest costs in a denture practice and lab.
Dental office consultants found that most practices are terribly inefficient in time management, wasting two to four hours of time virtually every day.
There is a huge difference between being busy and being profitable.
Practicing better time management in denture offices can cut the appointment backlog in half and increase production dramatically without raising fees. Not to mention the significant stress reduction of staff and patients.
Add to that a denture process that reduces chair time up to 50% and the productivity increases significantly, which not only boosts your bottom-line but practice health and propensity for consistent profitability.
That denture process is AvaDent Digital Dentures.
Researchers found that half of all dentists will not even do dentures because they feel they are too time-consuming, unpredictable, and unprofitable. AvaDent Digital Dentures can help – providing predictability, exceptional fit, and profitability for the denture office. This along with the comfort, convenience and happiness of the patient – which leads to greater patient retention, word of mouth referrals and a sustainable practice.
As the world’s first and only digital removable platform, AvaDent Digital Dentures needs only an initial record taking appointment, followed by a second appointment to deliver the final AvaDent, or an AvaDent Try-In. In cases where the dentist, denturist or prosthodontics requests an try-in, the third appointment becomes the delivery appointment.
This two-appointment procedure will cut chair time in half and deliver huge productivity improvements, which will lead to higher profits without changing fees. AvaDent’s accurate and prompt denture service also means patients can have new or replacement dentures in less time, with fewer post-op visits.
AvaDent Digital Dentures will dramatically reduce your denture product costs and the amount of labor involved in each denture fitting. Lower cost and less labor provide huge opportunities to grow denture practice and lab profitability.
Add this to the adult population growth in need of dentures and your practice will have a profitable growth engine for years.
