Credits: 1.5

Time: 8:00 PM ET

Designing and building a new dental office is exciting, but it can be overwhelming. Juggling the demands of your current office, dental team and patient care, along with color palates, new equipment, and treatment room designs can be stressful. It would be tempting to let someone else take over the details. Should you press the “Easy Button?

After leasing the same office space for 27 years, Dr. AnnMarie Olson took the leap to purchase an office condominium near her referral specialists and created a modern and comforting space for her patients. Dr. Olson will look at her recent experience building a dental office with topics including:

  • Creating a Vision: It’s more than paint swatches and counter tops.
  • Plan your transition: Are you dragging your old office ideas along, or is the new office a new opportunity?
  • Equipment purchases: Comparing buying groups to big name supply companies.
  • Hiring a Project Manager: Save your sanity by hiring someone to work with your contractor and coordinate the move.
  • Technology is critical: Hire the right team and the right “IT Guy”.

Top 8 Mistakes With Dental Insurance

Credits: 1.5
Cost: Free
Time: 8:00 PM ET

Dental insurance can be one of the most frustrating aspects of working in dentistry. The rules and the process can be onerous and outright unfair.
However, the worst issues with insurance, the ones most commonly cited as major problems are not an issue with the process itself. The main problems lie in how we react or treat the process, which makes it far harder to understand and we get worse results (less reimbursement) due to a lack of understanding.

This session is designed to help you overcome the most common mistakes with dental insurance that are causing a lot of the problems most offices are having.

Are you ready to have an easier time with insurance AND to get better results?

Objectives:
Understand the Common Failures with the Insurance Process
Learn What to Avoid
Increase Efficiency and Results
