Capitalize on the direct and INDIRECT productivity every day! An example of one RDH chair:
Direct revenue - $2200 (8 hour clinical day)
Indirect revenue - $1500
TOTAL contributing revenue - $3700 per day for one hygienist
Maximize on the daily clinical findings and the "next step" on every patient.
HISTORY - Patient of record (POR); past history of 3 month SRP; full mouth probing four years ago.
"Should this patient be on another 3 month SRP or do they need an altered treatment plan?"

CLINICAL FINDINGS - full mouth probing, in abbreviated format, indicated two 10mm pockets on #14; informed patient and took PA; consulted with DDS over clinical findings' DDS did a "look see" exam and with the information presented from the hygienist, a comprehensive treatment plan was presented.
"NEXT STEP" - Extract #14 (ASAP); immediate flipper partial (ASAP); full mouth SRP with anesthetic, est. 4 hours, (ASAP); periodontal exam (3 months); bridge/implant (6 months)
