All-Star Dental Academy Lead Mastery Coach Eric Vickery is joined by Dr. Ron Rotem.
Eric and Dr. Ron look at how a dental practice can operate without reliance on dental insurance.
Was there a time you participated with insurance?
What were you thinking during the years of heavy PPO participation?
If you had to do it over again what would you do differently?
How does your team handle insurance questions on New Patient phone calls?
Were there any time constraints or anything that prevented you from doing it before you decided to go for it?
What advice do you have for anyone who seems hamstrung by the world of PPOs?
