As you look ahead to 2024, how can a single or small group dental practice compete in today’s competitive landscape? How can you match the buying and negotiating power of DSOs? Can you provide enticing benefits to your team and obtain cost-effective quotes? When you analyze your profitability, every dollar saved contributes directly to your bottom line.
Currently, 95% of medical doctors are part of Group Purchasing Organizations (GPOs), and veterinarians have doubled their GPO participation in recent years.
