    Can Dental Training Drive Performance?

    Can Dental Training Drive Performance?

    How many times do we attend dental trainings with the hopes of that expensive training making a difference in the performance of our dental practice? It can when dental teams, and the doc, increase competency with knowledge and skills, become motivated to be paid fairly for the services you provide, and can envision opportunity and not obstacles with the training you embark on. Let the discussion begin...

    If Dental Insurance Doesn't Cover It...

    If Dental Insurance Doesn't Cover It...

    What am I getting at you might ask? It’s simple. The majority of dental teams have been brainwashed into thinking that if dental insurance won’t pay for it, heaven forbid you actually charge the patient directly for services the PPO Plan won’t cover.

    Dentists and their teams fear telling patients their dental plan won't cover certain procedures. We need to drop those fears and preconceived false business teachings and charge for the services we provide. It really is that simple, and patients are happy to pay for those services when they understand them. So...teach them.

    Freedom Goes Both Ways

    Freedom Goes Both Ways

    Hardly a week goes by that we don’t see an article published, or a diatribe written, condemning dental insurance companies. Or, more specifically, the reimbursement rates, delay tactics, and a list of other topics we all deal with on a daily basis when taking patients who are “dental insured.”

    When Tracy and I battled the major insurance players against bundling, down-coding, and misleading language on EOBs, we were protecting the rights of dental offices, and the services they provide to their patients. The one thing we were very careful to protect was the freedoms involved with capitalism. The freedoms that every business has a right too, courtesy of our founding fathers.

    If "A", Why Not "B"?

    If "A", Why Not "B"?

    I'm always amazed at how dentists and their teams are completely brainwashed when it comes to business decisions that completely lack fundamental judgement of business skills. No business and thought leaders would ever put up with what we dentists do on a daily basis, let alone make business decisions that are not grounded in profitability so that the company can grow, profit, and thrive. It's time for dentistry to wake up and reclaim forgotten profitability again...
