Teresa Duncan explores the dental business from behind-the-scenes of the industry to tackling management and business issues in the office.

Jun 28, 2023

My guests are Matt Nelson and Lisa Greer from the California Dental Association. They handle practice management and benefits issues from their member dentists. Between the two of them they've heard some stories! They share so many tips on this episode.  Just a few critical topics facing owners and practice leaders:

  • Non-covered services
  • Leased networks confusion
  • How to handle audits
  • Recoupment requests
  • The importance of strong leadership training in this environment of compliance and audits
  • Evaluating your contracts 

The conversation took an interesting turn when we discussed venturing out-of-network and its pertinent considerations. Should you send a letter to your patients or not? We packed this episode full of "Nobody Told Me That!" moments. I hope it's helpful!
