All-Star Dental Academy Lead Mastery Coach Eric Vickery is joined by guest Dr. Ted Morgan.
Eric and Dr. Morgan talked about dental membership plans. Dr. Morgan was an early adopter of this concept and has used it successfully to grow his fee-for-service practice. After implementing his plan, he realized that memberships aren’t just a way to give discounts to a few patients without dental insurance, they can actually transform a dental practice when used to their full potential. Dr. Morgan discusses how the membership concept, while simple, is fraught with potential pitfalls, and that It’s critical to get it right before you launch.
