Your Dental Team has more important things to do than to conduct a thorough audit and renegotiation of your business expenses; but that’s what Schooley Mitchell does, all day, every day. We optimize your expenses so you can focus on doing what you do best – helping your patients.

At Schooley Mitchell, we’re entirely independent of any vendors. Our consultants receive no incentives or bonuses from services providers. In fact, we’re so confident in our ability to negotiate savings for our clients, we’ve based our business model on that very fact; if we don’t deliver savings, we don’t get paid.

Please register below for a 15-minute phone call to discuss which expense categories you want us to review as part of your complimentary cost analysis.

Medical Waste

How predictable is your medical waste every month?

Variability in your medical waste from month-to-month makes a big difference to certain service providers.

How do you deal with amalgam waste? Contaminated waste? Sharps?

Each of these require a specific disposal method that could represent additional costs.

Who supplies your medical waste and sharps containers and how are they stored?

Operational procedures and location specific descisions can substantially impact your overall pricing.

Merchant Services

Do you reference the "effective rate" to evaluate how competitive your processing fees are?

A blended pricing structure makes it more difficult to fully understand all the factors impacting your fees.

Do you know how your current processing environment impacts your processing fees?

How you process payments and capture data can have a big impact on your monthly fees.

Have you asked your processor to provide you an "interchange-plus pricing" quote?

This pricing structure is often the least expensive and most transparent option.


Have you conducted a recent usage audit across your telecommunications system?

In many cases, we find inefficiencies and redundancies in the number of lines and features.

Have you considered moving to a Voice over IP platform?

Cloud based telecommunications systems typically provide unique features at lower costs.

Do you know when your current plan automatically renews?

Companies typically only have a 30-day window to make changes to their current contract.

Compressed Gases

Have you conducted a “lease versus own” analysis of your storage tanks?

Different vendors offer very different pricing structures.

Are you paying too much for your specific delivery times?

Being more flexible on delivery times can significantly reduce your costs.

Do you review your monthly statements to ensure the correct charge codes are used?

Charge codes can be confusing and require a review to ensure you are being charged correctly.
