As we step into 2024, DSOs are faced with a landscape marked by great uncertainty. The effects of the Great Resignation and Great Recession are still felt, making this coming year both challenging and full of potential. Despite this, one thing is clear: DSOs need a solid strategy for steady growth.
The Great Resignation and Economic Uncertainty
In the last few years we witnessed a seismic shift in the job market, as employees across various sectors sought new opportunities, leading to what has been coined the “Great Resignation.” The dental industry, too, felt the impact, with staff turnover rates reaching unprecedented levels. This trend is likely to persist into 2024, posing a significant challenge for DSOs in terms of talent acquisition and retention.
Moreover, the lingering effects of the Great Recession continue to cast a shadow over the economy. Inflationary pressures, supply chain disruptions, and fluctuating consumer confidence levels are just a few of the variables that will shape the business landscape in the coming year. DSOs must remain adaptive to these economic shifts to ensure sustained profitability and success.
Continued Emphasis on Same Store Growth
While uncertainty may be the prevailing theme, one constant for DSOs is the continued emphasis on same store growth. This involves optimizing the performance of existing dental practices, rather than solely relying on expansion through acquisitions.
