Susan enjoys time with family and friends, biking, golf, yoga, and days at the beach. As she often tells her clients, never underestimate the value of a smile.
During this episode Susan shares her experience in helping a few practices drop Delta dental successfully. According to Susan, it takes a lot of time to prepare your team and your patients for the transition. When you take the time to prepare, dropping Delta is not as scary as one would think. In fact, the clients she helped drop Delta are producing much more than they used to before. Those practices are on a true path of insurance independence and embracing a forgotten true fee for service practice.
