Do not be fooled. Owning a high production dental office does not necessarily mean that you are successful. Until you understand the significance of office overhead and how it affects the bottom line, your colleagues can be working ½ as hard and be making more. For instance, the net profit for a practice grossing $2M at 80% overhead is $400K whereas the net profit for a practice grossing $1M at 50% overhead is $500K. Which office would you rather own? Unfortunately, 70-80% overhead is something that we see in the industry far too often.
