If you have been practicing dentistry for a while and working with one or more PPO (Preferred Provider Organization) plans, you would know how it drains your practice earnings. Some dentists even pay insurance companies around 38 cents for every dollar earned, causing considerable dents in their profitability. The situation has become so severe that some dentists believe that there is no future for private dentistry practice.
But does this have to be so? Not necessarily!
If dental practices can reduce their dependence on insurance companies, they will regain their profitability and improve their working environments and the industry, thus "making dentistry great again."
