Larry Brannon, DMD
I was really impressed with the "Dental Practice of the Year" article (see July issue of Dental Economics). Congratulations to Dr. Flora. You should include his financial numbers in the article as well.
Later in the magazine, Dr. Ed Miller discusses the value of 52 percent overhead and keeping a control on expenses. How does the Practice of the Year handle expenses? The article stated that Dr. Flora has a "million-dollar practice." Does he also struggle with an 80 percent overhead?
Your program was designed to give dentists an opportunity to compare themselves to one of the most successful practices in the country. I think the information is incomplete without the hard numbers.
