With approximately 1/3 of annual dentist-generated revenue coming from direct restorations2, a positive Class II experience is more important than ever. Overall, 26% of patients blame a bad dental experience for not returning3, which also affects the likelihood that they will refer friends and family. And with each patient being worth $1,000 annually4, plus 50% of a dentist’s new business being referrals, one unsuccessful Class II can cost way more than the $292 it takes to redo5 it.
