Patients who come through PPO plans tend to accept treatments only if they are covered by insurance. And then there’s another segment of patients who only visit the dental office if they are in severe pain, and once their pain goes away, they do not come back for routine dental appointments. Regardless of the type of patients that visit your dental practice, there is one effective detail that will increase your practice case acceptance. 

In this episode, Gary and Naren discuss the most effective detail that will increase your case acceptance and how to use the detail in your practice!

In the upcoming MBA Workshop, you will learn the ten elements of a thriving practice and 24 systems that will enable you to apply the 10 core success areas in your dental practice!
