Profitable Dental Studio - Business Tip

Providing Loupe to Hygienists is a solid business investment for every dental studio- A Case Study

Serious neck, shoulder, and upper back pain, fatigue, and injury problems, as well as posture so poor that it affects general physical performance, are disturbingly common throughout the dental profession. Forced early retirement due to neck, shoulder, and back problems is a frequent occurrence in dentistry.
All the years of training, skill acquisition, and capital investment are worth nothing if you can't hold up to the physical demands of dental practice and then retire healthfully.

A study says 80% of Dentists and 70% of Hygienists after 15 years into profession complain about these professional problems in one form or other.

It is estimated that wearing a right eye loupe and some simple exercises can reduce the risk of these professional problems by 75%.

Lets examine how a small Dental Studio can be benefited by wearing eye loupes in every procedure.

A small dental studio with one Dentist, 5 Hygienists and other staff

The dental studio decides to buy 5 no's 2.5x STAC High Performance Eye Loupes for hygienists and 1 no 3.5x STAC High Performance Eye Loupe and 1 no 5.0x STAC Extended Performance Loupe for Dentists and 1 no 2.5x STAC High Performance Loupe for reserves and extra rush. Total capital expenditure of $4000. It is assumed that the maintenance cost for the loupes will be covered from the increased outlay of consumables in the table below.

After using Eye loupes in the Dental Studio for 2 years one will start seeing the following benefits.

Improvement in capacity utilization due to lesser fatigue, lesser complains for lower back pain or neck pain, improvement in customer satisfaction. Capacity utilization may improve within the range from 12.5% to 25% depending on other factors.

One will also see reduction in salary cost(casual short term hiring) as there will be less leave of absence, replacements and lower training cost. the reduction in salary will range within 5% - 10%

the following table shows the impact of Eye Loupes on the profit of Dental Studio.
