Insurance, Customer Service, and Debt Management

Learning Objectives:

After hearing this podcast, the listener should:

  • See a variety of ways in which joining a group practice might benefit them
  • Have a better understanding of the many facets that go into running a successful practice

Large group practices are well positioned to respond to many challenges clinicians face in the dental practice. Dental insurance, for example, proves to be a considerable hurdle in today’s market. Customer service is another critical area to understand. Additionally, according to the American Dental Education Association, dentists are graduating with debt loads that are higher than in the past, with little or no debt management training. Every aspiring dental professional comes to a crossroads where it is necessary to make important choices before moving on to the next phase of his or her career.  Many career paths are available to the recent graduate, and it is the responsibility of each to fully explore the solo environment, public health, large group practices, and other such alternatives in order to arrive at an educated decision of how to take this next step.
