As we move forward with continual changes in the dental office, creating new efficiencies is necessary to improve costs for patients and increase profits for dental teams.
Dental insurance has played a critical roll in allowing individuals to seek preventive care over the years for a fixed monthly cost. However, over the years the insurance executives have become “fat cats” often retaining more than half of the premiums patients pay while decreasing the reimbursements to dental offices. The insurance executives advise dental offices to find more efficient ways of operating.
Dental memberships allow a more efficient way to operate, transforming the dental office into a lean machine and eliminating the high overhead associated with traditional insurance. The patient subscribes directly with the dentist, allowing for lower monthly costs while boosting the office income.
A membership program can also help you to escape the PPO trap, by offering your patients an alternative.
