It?s no secret that the economic downturn in the United States has affected dental practices. Many of our patients are struggling financially, which ultimately trickles down to where discretionary income is spent?dental health! Insurance benefits continue to be reined in as a cost-cutting measure for businesses. This leads patients to believe that if it is not a covered benefit, then it is not necessary. In addition, our patients are often pain-free when they have dental disease. The price-sensitive patient struggles with the mentality "if it isn?t broke?then don?t fix it!" Overcoming this objection in today?s economy is something that every practice must face to be financially solvent. This course is designed to help dental practices move patients forward with health-centered care. Our patients don?t know what they don?t know! It is our responsibility to engage them with a full understanding of the limitations of insurance. Attendees will learn to speak with confidence and create more value for the care that the patients truly need!
