An outsourcing solution
With practice life so busy, why not take payroll off your plate? says Daniel Hull.
We may no longer be in the eye of the storm, but we’re still living through one of the most challenging business environments there has ever been. Running a dental practice is never easy, but since March 2020 you will have realised the chances of having an entirely uneventful week are slim, to non-existent.
Your team will have had to learn to thrive under pressure. A great team will not just be talented, professional and patient-focussed, they will also be motivated to keep delivering exceptional care in the most stressful of circumstances. In every workplace, the pandemic blurred lines between ‘work’ and ‘home’. You may still have staff having to self-isolate – with zero notice – or needing time off to look after a family member. Schedules must be juggled and quick decisions made, without interruption to services.
It is likely that your profits have taken a hit, affecting cashflow and forcing you to go back and forth with your dental accountant to ensure that you are taking advantage of all tax-saving strategies available. On top of all this is necessary expenditure on things like enhanced PPE and equipment. The dental market is fast-moving and has been becoming more high-tech for some time now – maybe there are few reasons left not to bring in that cutting- edge digital scanner.
