With more competition, fewer dollars spent on healthcare, intrusions from corporate practices and insurance companies mean we have to be at the top of our dental game. It is time to design a business model for dentistry that will not only compete in this economy, but actually guarantee predictive growth while lowering overhead and stress. No business should try to compete without challenging benchmarks. Once you have your target in the form of various benchmarks, you need to build your business model with a sound financial system.
At the end of this training session, you will have black and white goals and targets to guide you in your pursuit of growth. This session starts with all things financial and insures that your office will have the tools to do treatment estimates, insurance processing, 100% collections, patient financing, and proper accounts receivable management. Multi-million doctor practices are guided by these financial policies, and you will be exposed to all things financial in a Super General Dental Practice.
This is can be viewed "stand alone" but is also part 2 of a six part series that as a whole gives you every step to thrive in Dentistry in any location or economy.
