We kick off the conversation by diving into the world of PPO plans and the typical write-offs that many dentists face. Naren suggests that replacing patients acquired through PPO plans with Google SEO strategies is the first crucial step to reducing insurance dependence.

 He emphasizes the importance of mastering Google SEO to attract more patients while maintaining control over your practice’s financial health. Additionally, Naren delves into the significance of being relationship-driven in your dental practice and offers practical advice on nurturing these connections. From the fundamentals to the advanced techniques, this episode provides a comprehensive guide on building a dental practice that’s less reliant on insurance and more focused on lasting patient relationships. Whether you want to break free from insurance constraints or enhance your practice’s patient care, this episode is a must-listen.
