The course will cover the market research, practice data, and case studies that show how you can significantly increase the revenue, profitability and value of your practice without adding new patients. Some items that will be covered:
1. From 1997 to 2016, the dental market grew 70% while dentist earnings remained flat! The webinar will explore why this is the case.
2. Dental insurance does not work for dentists or patients. The webinar will cover the specifics of why this is true and why it is getting worse, not better.
3. 38 million uninsured patients in the US visit the dentist each year, but they are 50-70% less compliant than insured patients. The webinar will explain why these patients avoid treatment and what you can do to improve treatment acceptance rates.
4. Practices are discovering that membership plan patients are the best patients. The webinar will show data from practices that offer membership plans to their patients and the impact it has had on revenue, profitability and practice valuation. Description of Speaker:
Dave Monahan is the CEO of Kleer, a cloud-based platform that enables dentists to easily create their own membership plan and offer it directly to their patients. Kleer eliminates the cost and hassle of the insurance middle man, making it very easy for patients to get the comprehensive dental care they want while enabling dentists to increase patient loyalty, visits, and treatment acceptance.
Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to achieve the following:
Understand some reasons why it has become more difficult to run a profitable dental practice. Learn how uninsured patients think about dental care. Learn how to significantly improve the financial performance of your practice by focusing on existing uninsured patients, avoiding the cost, hassle and typical failure of new patient specials and new patient marketing activities.
