Affordable dental care | Dental Plans | Dental Insurance ppo
affordable dental care stick around and to contribute but the hard fact is that a lot of them have become very comfortable in their jobs and just need a little bit of a #Facebook shake-up I don’t think they necessarily need to be gone I mean there’s a lot of good workers out there and who best knows affordable dental care the practice in the area but you know if you’re a leader and a practice owner
you need to be you need to be the person who is able to give affordable dental carethat little kick in the butt and it’s your practice so you should be #twitter totally dental and vision insurance plansokay with doing that completely agreed so so let’s move a bit into more of a like some of those bad habits that you see some of these office managers #wikipedia or insurance coordinators developing over the years what are
some of the more specific ones that you’ve seen occur so that people can be aware that this could be occurring in their practice I’ll give you the number one pet peeve that I see and the number one indicator is when you have somebody who is not questioning the EO B’s at all so as a new practice owner when you hire somebody what you’ll
see you’ll spend actually a ridiculous amount of your #Facebook time looking at yo B’s that’s because you’re your person is new you’re new to this you’re gonna be scrutinizing EO B’s like crazy that doesn’t stop I hate to say it that doesn’t stop because they’re there so they can be really complex they’re changing their errors that happen so if you have an office
manager or an insurance coordinator dental and vision insurance plans who seems to never come to you with those issues or seems to never vent I mean they may not need you to solve them they can solve them but it I mean they should be venting about it at least they dental and vision insurance plans should be running into these issues what that tells me is you have somebody who just processes it as it as they
see it and there’s no questioning which means there’s no appeals being affordable dental care filed there’s write offs that are being taken because it’s dental and vision insurance plans easier to just write it off than to appeal it there’s there’s no picking up the phone and saying what gives to the

to say that’s not affordable dental insurance my thing and so I pretty much had to learn it myself and I started out in dentistry as an assistant never had to #wikipedia deal with admin stuff then found out I liked admin stuff so affordable dental insurance went through the whole receptionist thing went through the whole being the office manager now insurance ended up being a bigger part of my role towards the
later years of being a manager so I kind of became a go-to for #twitter other offices in the area you know meeting with other office managers I I was always the one that they would call for advice and it was I was happy to get it and I was happy to give it from other to other people so that’s that kind affordable dental insurance of turned into its own thing locally and I started
speaking for study clubs and doing more speaking and I quit let me see I quit about ten years ago full-time and then just started Odyssey management and it’s been it’s been a rollercoaster ever since a good roller coaster a good roller coaster it’s always like that you have a new a new chapter and your professional career isn’t it so tell me you know so
