PROACTIVE PRACTICE MANAGEMENT
 

About The Course:
Since dental patients across the country are becoming more service savvy, it is more important now than ever before for dentists and staff to create a people-friendly atmosphere while at the same time operating their practice as a business. An appropriate system that addresses payment in this way will help dentists and their team members ensure payment for their services, while creating loyal patients who refer friends and family to the practice.

"Proactive Payment Systems" is a principle-based workshop that provides the guidelines necessary for dentists and their staffs to construct an appropriate payment system for their unique practice. Additionally, this course will teach the improved process and protocols in order to create a financially healthy dental practice.
