Event Details

Implants: what are the actual economics? The pressures to deliver services at competitive rates is now clearly visible in all aspects of dentistry. With regards to dental implants, this is perhaps even more true. However, when the actual accounting of the placement, restoring and maintenance of implants is reviewed, there are some significant differences in where the profit margins vs the risk of procedures having adverse consequences. This lecture looks at what it really costs to utilising the option of the dental implant and perhaps what aspects have been ignored to the clinicians peril.
