AADOM Radio-Innovation in patient financing: what office managers need to know.
Patients’ ability to afford treatment remains a challenge for dental practices, leading to lower-than-desired case acceptance. Options to overcome the money hurdle, such as patient financing, have historically fallen short of serving you and your patients. In fact, nearly 9 in 10 dental professionals report they aren’t completely satisfied with their existing financing solution. But with nearly 40 percent of Americans unable to cover a $400 surprise expense, how can you help patients overcome the cost issue without it? Join us as we sit down with industry experts for a discussion about the flaws with patient financing and how a modern approach can better serve patients and their practices. This is a podcast episode AADOM members won’t want to miss! Listen to the episode now.
