Love Your Practice

Mar 23, 2023

Are you afraid to break free from insurance contracts and practice dentistry on your own terms? This episode will help you learn how you can face and overcome this fear! One of the amazing people in dentistry is my guest on this episode, dental coach Angela Davis-Sullivan. Angela has over 30 years of experience in the industry, and she coaches dental practices on how to exit their insurance contracts. Are you envisioning your practice without contracts? Angela discusses ways to determine if your practice is ready - right now - to drop your insurance contracts.

As practice owners, we buy our jobs, and then we sometimes PAY to be in-network. This can put caps on our income … but this episode will help you see how to get out from under those insurance contracts! It is time to BE HAPPY about the money you are making in your practice. This exit process requires bravery to create a strategy to inform the team and patients that you are moving away from insurance contracts. And, ultimately, this is best for the patients. Stepping away from insurance requires a mind shift in how we look at each day; it’s a matter of thinking about the patients we can actually serve and help each and every day. This process can be stressful, but it is vital to trust the process and celebrate the wins as they happen. Don’t be a slave to dental insurance companies - get your freedom back! Listen to this episode now to learn how you can change your perspective and develop the confidence it takes to overcome the fear of taking this big step for your practice!
