Dental Practice Manager

Dental Practice Managers make sure each area of your practice is performing well. Selecting a single KPI or metric that defines their performance may be difficult. Instead select one that needs improvement or select multiple incentive rules to build their incentive template. The incentive template for a practice manager is built using both treatment acceptance and monthly practice net income (profit). Alternate incentive rules could be built using the following KPIs: Overhead, treatment room production, collections, new patients per month or patient satisfaction.

Reward your billing specialists for making sure your practice gets paid for those services. The incentive template for a billing specialist is based on monthly collection of billed treatments. Alternate incentive rules could be built using the following KPIs: Overhead or Net Income (profit).

Building Your Dental Practice Team Incentive Plan

ourlinQ will come pre-populated with our recommended monthly incentive plan for your dental practice. Simply upload your employees and assign an incentive template to each employee based on their role.  You can start your incentive plan as is, or adjust bonus frequency, targets, incentives or add new incentive rules that fit specific initiatives in your organization.

The ourlinQ Team developed the dental practice incentive plan by drawing on industry resources and benchmarking data for bonus amounts and KPI targets published by ADA and DentalPost. However, we recognize that every practice is different, so adjustments may be necessary to achieve your specific goals.
