Decatur Grossing $800k

Decatur, IL

I have been practicing general dentistry in Decatur, Illinois, on my own for the past eleven years. I recently moved into a new building and my office is approximately 2700 square feet on one of the busiest streets in town. I have five treatment rooms. I do all my own extractions except for impacted third molars and all my own endo. I do some ortho except for difficult cases. I have a Cerec acquisition unit and milling unit and do my own posterior crowns and onlays. Patients love not having to come back for a second visit. I do not do implants, neither placement or restoration. It is something I never got into so there is room for growth there.

My two hygienists have been with me for 19 years each. My receptionist has been with me for eleven years and one assistant has been with me ten years and the other six years. Patients really appreciate seeing the same faces every time they come in; it makes them feel more comfortable.

We stay very busy and our schedule is usually quite full. I don’t do much advertising, just the phone book and word of mouth. I think I have developed a good reputation in town.
