Where did the last 20 years go?! As a longstanding NASDAL accountant I wait each year with baited breath for our publication of the annual Profit & Loss account benchmarking statistics. This annual survey began in 1998, so not quite the 20 year GDPUK yardstick, but as good as we can get.
How have the annual numbers changed? When the survey first started it didn’t differentiate between NHS and Private practices, and it was produced on a per dentist basis (i.e. if the practice had a principal and two associates, the practice numbers were divided by three). Nowadays we produce figures both per dentist, and per Principal, and split between NHS, Private, and Mixed practices.
So, the figures I’m about to illustrate should be taken solely on a broad brush basis, some estimation has been used, but this is just for fun – don’t shoot the statistician!
The table below shows the key statistics:
