Teamwork begins by building trust. And the only way to do that is to overcome our need for invulnerability.

Being a practice owner doesn’t mean that you should do all the heavy lifting on your own when it comes to reducing insurance dependence. And even if you attempt to do everything alone, the practice will experience reduced results. 

Your dental practice needs to be relationship-driven if you want to reduce insurance dependency successfully, and this is something that your new team members may not be aware of. It is not fair to be critical of your team members because they may have worked in a different culture where the relationship aspect was not as important. 

Tune into this episode to learn how to get new team members on board when resigning from PPO plans!
