Does anyone do custom shades at the doc's office? How much do you charge?

That seems like a great service to offer, but I can't imagine what a feasible price would be...

Being out of the lab, driving, bringing all the stuff I would need... :eek:

I have heard of it being up to $250 for that service , I refuse unless it’s something crazy.

I do. Because I work out of my house. I charge $35 which is chump change. However it usually coincides with a pick up or delivery and give me a chance for a little one on one time with the office.

Custom Shade or Custom Staining? If they come to our lab (we have a dental chair in our waiting room) then we charge $25/patient to snap some photos. As for going out to custom staining in the Docs office, we do offer this service, cost is $100. However, if it's a big case or multiple crowns, then a PITA charge is applied of $250. Hope that helps.

Tripple your in-lab shade taking and make it per hour starting with when you leave the lab till you return with a 1hr minimum. That's one way. Still doesn't get the work done while your gone though.

Edit:Should've looked up BeerBanghead
You may consider an hourly fee with a one hour minimum.

I was thinking custom shade pictures and stuff. That's great you offer that. I could see it getting bigger.

Yeah that's so cheap. I guess it's different for everyone. With some things I feel like if it's so cheap then the doc might feel like they're asking for a favor when they ask for it. And asking for favors is harder than just paying for something sometimes.

We do it for $100.

We have 3 technicians who perform the service, as well as a professional photographer who sometimes goes out with the technician to do the photos.

Several of our larger clients have 1-2 of these per month for free as a courtesy.

Currently we are training 2 more technicians for this as well as in office repairs/attachment pickups and an additional conversion specialist
