A Profitable Practice with Invisalign
One of the biggest reasons why orthodontists fail to offer Invisalign to their patients is because of the ‘expensive’ Invisalign lab fee. The conventional wisdom is that while treating more clear aligner patients can increase overall practice revenue, the practice’s profitability will decline as a result of using a more expensive product. Additionally, many orthodontists feel the need to charge more for Invisalign and offer less flexible financial terms than they would with braces. These are false assumptions that need to be rectified for the benefit of our patients.
Having a profitable practice is certainly important if you want to be able to reinvest in technology to improve patient care and offer more affordable financing.
