Dental Business Management

Treatment Planning

Treatment planning and dental coding go hand in hand. Mistakes and procedures not charged out will lead to less revenue affecting another key function to operate at 100%…managing overhead. As the leak continues in your systems, other areas of the practice begin to compromise. Our experience of 16 years in the dental industry and business management will help to eliminate costly mistakes that can be avoided. If you feel your practice and team could benefit from better systems and training, contact me today to discuss how we can help you.

Recall

Attrition is difficult to keep up with if systems are absent in promoting returning patients and keeping an active patient base. Being the foundation to dental practices, we encourage weekly activity in your recall protocol. What does your recall system consists of? If your practice lacks an efficient recare system, please call me today to help you implement successful methods. Maintaining and monitoring your patients preventative care is critical to your daily schedule and diagnosing treatment. We can create a unique and customized recall system to keep in touch with your patients without the feeling of being harassed. Your team will know when the patient was last contacted and when it’s time to contact them again.


Internal & External Marketing

Internal and external marketing tactics come hand in hand. As we focus on positive patient interactions within the practice, it will naturally lead to external marketing with the patient’s experience posted online for the world to see.  We can build a practice that revolves around internal marketing efforts. In addition to online reviews, it makes better sense to build a family of patients with existing great patients. You can create a patient base you enjoy with referrals and focus on strong relationships that enhance friendships, family atmosphere & value.  Community out-reach and charity are  great ways to get involved.

Insurance Training

Detailed insurance training is a primary focus that will provide a positive change to A/R.  Complete and accurate verification of insurance benefits affects collections, treatment planning, accounts receivable and most importantly, your patients. With all the changes in healthcare, dental insurance has increased in complications.  When benefits are inaccurately acquired, it’s the dentist who ultimately pays the price. We will work together with your administrative team to fully and confidently understand the inner workings of insurance to manage A/R and timely claim payment.

Case Presentation

We want patients to understand, feel comfortable and feel confident in their proposed treatment. If one of these is lacking, they very well may not schedule. How do you ensure your dental team is presenting treatment plans in your absence? Often times we will find that even some of the most seasoned dental professionals could benefit from proper training. Successful case acceptance relies on the knowledge, compassion and flexibility your practices provides. Not only could finances be a weighing factor to not schedule, delivery is key to provide a caring approach. Call today to see how we can help!

With 16 years of experience in the dental industry, we are able to help in many aspects of operating a successful dental practice. Provider and business management and set up, practice transitions, staff recruitment, and implementing systems and operations are several ways we can help you. Whether your team is inexperienced, has a lack of experience or you’re seeking to provide your team with additional training, give me a call. I am confident you and your team will enjoy and value my services and getting to know me. I look forward to helping you!
