Combatting Price-Cutting: Try instituting tiered pricing plans that allow you to retain business you might otherwise lose to a less expensive lab. For instance, rather than lowering prices on your premium restorations, offer other options – like basic and mid-range restorations that require less labor and use a different quality of material.
