Owners of dental practices are entrepreneurs, but often lack comprehensive business knowledge. Thus, they often would need advice from a professional business consultant. However, given the revenue size of a common dental practice, fees for a professional management consulting project are simply not in financial reach for most dentists. By conducting a benchmarking study of a dental practice using an online platform, the dentist gains access to a proven consulting method and recognizes a clear and objective perspective on strengths and improvement potential for the practice. For the very first time, a professional benchmarking is available at an affordable base price. In addition, standardized consulting services can be booked on top for reasonable prices.
