I’m putting my money where my mouth is. Although I am not a dentist, I do own a dental practice in Phoenix Arizona and we have, in my own practice, successfully reduced our insurance dependency.

Numbers don’t lie, truth doesn’t lie. You really need to look at the numbers, because you are literally losing money with clients who have PPO Insurance.

CEO of Ekwa Marketing & Host of the Growing Dentist Podcast.
Naren, you’re a genius! Simply a genius. I so appreciate a big thinker that takes the complexity out of things. You’ve done it in terms of a complex thing called marketing & being successful with digital marketing and you’ve mastered it. And what you’ve done with Ekwa and making it easy for dentists and their teams to market themselves is nothing short of miraculous. So if you’re a dentist that wants to automate how you approach your practice and your marketing, check out Naren and Ekwa.
