6. Your accountant doesn’t know how much your hygiene department productions should be relevant to their compensation.

5. Your accountant doesn’t know what portion of your practice should be dentist production versus hygiene production.

4. Your accountant doesn’t regularly present to dental association, study clubs and schools on such topics as, How to Buy a Dental Practice, Life after Graduation, Overhead Benchmarks, etc…
