Like other small employers, small dental practices are not immune from common business challenges.
Last week, we wrote an article featured on DentistryIQ discussing the top business challenges faced by Dentists, and how to face them head on.
Here are highlights from the recent Zane Benefits blog feature article.
Article Highlights - Top 3 Business Challenges
As discussed in the article, the top three business challenges faced by small dental practices are:
1. Healthcare costs
The cost to provide health insurance is sky-rocketing. This poises a big obstacle to offering employees health benefits. To face the challenge head on, explore affordable health benefits options.
2. Recruiting and retaining quality staff
With the preferences of the workforce becoming more diverse, dynamic, and competitive, staffing is another big challenge for small dental practices. To face this challenge head on, implement strategic recruiting and retention activities.
3. Attracting new patients
With limited marketing budgets, the third challenge is attracting new patients. Small practices can overcome this challenge by implementing low-cost online marketing strategies and referral programs.
The article can be accessed via DentistryIQ’s website and is a helpful resource for Dentists and dental practice managers.
