Dentists know the truth about PPOs’now; they are eager to drop PPO plans. In Gary’s coaching career, dentists often ask which time is right for them to drop PPO plans and how long it will take because they are ready to transform their dental practices.

Impatience can either be a blessing or a curse based on the situation of your dental practice. Listen to this episode and find out the right time to drop PPO plans!
