What is Compound Procedural Experience?Compound Procedural Experience is a calculation that refers to how much experience your provider has in procedural experiences, not years of service. Procedural Experience far outweighs years of services due to compounding daily experiences. For example, as a Painter, the average time it takes to paint one house is 4 - 6 days. Working every day per month with time off would equal 3 - 4 "procedures" a month or between 36 - 48 "procedures" per year. As a Dentist, the average amount of procedures completed per day is between 12 - 18. Working 4 days per week would equal 192 - 288 "procedures" a month or 2,304 - 3,456 "procedures" per year!
