Episode 86: How To Create, Organize, And Automate Your In-House Dental Practice Membership Plan With Jordon Comstock

Start-Your-Own-Practice-(1)

According to recent statistics, 55% of American’s don’t have dental insurance. And if your practice is only serving the 45% of patients that do, you’re leaving a ton of money (and profit) on the table.

One way to serve those without insurance is to offer an in-house membership plan, but when done improperly, it can often be more of a headache than a plus.

Fortunately, there’s a method to the madness when it comes to in-house membership plans, which is why I’m excited to have today’s guest Jordon Comstock on the show. Jordon is the founder of BoomCloud a membership plan software that helps you focus on what matters.

If Jordon’s name sounds familiar, you may have heard Jordon and his partner Ben have me on the Navigating Dental Insurance podcast in which discussed dental insurance.

What I love about Jordon’s story is how he created a software based on his own needs, and in our conversation, we discuss in-house membership plans in depth.

Episode 85: Mastering The Art of Dental Insurance, Negotiation, And Carrier Relationship Management With Harold Gornbein

Start-Your-Own-Practice-(1)

As technology continues to transform the dental industry, the world of insurance and credentialing has become increasingly complex. As a result, dentists are spending more and more of their valuable time trying to figure things out.

And if we’re being honest, most dentists don’t exactly get excited about dealing with insurance and properly codifying their services.

Which is why I’m so excited about today’s SYDP guest Harold Gornbein, Harold is a partner of Apex Reimbursement Specialists, which helps put money back in dentists pockets and saves tons of the time in the process.

With over 20 + years of dealing with insurance, Harold knows exactly what it takes to give dentists the winning edge. I think you’ll enjoy his refreshingly honest take on the world of insurance and negotiation.

Episode 84: How To Create A Family Friendly Dental Practice With Dr. Darold Opp

Start-Your-Own-Practice-(1)One of the best parts about running the Start Your Dental Practice podcast is all the interesting opportunities that it has created for me, both personally and professionally.

I get emails and phone calls from listeners all the time sharing their successes, failures, and all the big things they want to accomplish. It’s such a great feeling and an incredible honor.

On occasion, some listeners will reach out in hopes of coming on the show and to pitch their latest product or service, but as you know, that would go against everything I believe here at SYDP.

However, sometimes I get a request from a listener who absolutely blows me away with their story and accomplishments, and that would be today’s guest Dr. Darold Opp.

Dr. Darold is a  now retired, former practice owner, who was able to see some great success over the years in the dental industry. He now spends his time helping other dentists get to where they want to go.

In our chat we cover a lot of ground, mistakes he’s made, things he did well, and why creating a family-friendly practice is one of the best things you can do.

Episode 83: How To Transform Your Dental Practice Through Office Design With Cheryl Janis

Start-Your-Own-Practice-(1)

There are many things that go into building a successful dental practice.

Good marketing helps get patients in the door.

A high-quality team makes sure things run smoothly.

And delivering great service ensures your patients leave happy.

But there’s a huge factor, that many small businesses owners, especially dental practices, often neglect, that can have a huge impact on your bottom line.

What’s that? Your office design.

Look, the second your patients step into your office, you want to make sure you’re leaving a good impression.

Which is why I’m excited to have Cheryl Janis founder of Cheryl Janis Designs on the show. Cheryl specializes in building high nurturing environments for purpose-driven physicians and healthcare businesses helping them get the most out of their office space.

While we talk a lot about increasing revenues, marketing, and SEO, here on SYDP, I really think Cheryl will make you rethink the importance of design and your office environment.
