According to LMT's 2013 Dentist Survey, lab owners are sometimes hesitant to raise their fees, fearful of losing the account. Yet 53% of dentists surveyed feel it’s reasonable for a laboratory to increase prices once a year by an average of 3.3%. Twenty-nine percent think an increase—an average of 4.6—every two years is more acceptable.
