Your hygiene department is your most lucrative department within your dental practice, if it is managed properly. You want to make sure you have enough hours within your
hygiene department to give ample time to schedule patients, perform perio services, and convert patients from hygiene to doctor production. It’s the main funnel for everything in your
office and yet it’s the one department that often gets the least attention. Use these calculations to ensure you have the right amount of time allowed for the hygiene department.
