Episode 87: How To Pay Off Your Dental Student Loans With Travis Hornsby

Start-Your-Own-Practice-(1)Chances are if you’re listening to this podcast, you have some dental student loan debt.

Having worked exclusively with dentists for most of my professional career, it’s not common for me to see aspiring practice owners coming out of school with 400-500k in student loan debt, and that’s only for a dental license!

While we can debate whether or not the large costs are justified, the reality is, without a student loan plan of attack, you’ll be stuck making payments for the rest of your life.

Which is why I’m excited to share my conversation with Travis Hornsby, founder of StudentLoanPlanner.com

Travis has helped hundreds of professionals take control of their finances and student loan debt — and has an incredible track record of helping his clients become debt free.

Even if you’re fortunate to have paid off your student loans, I know you’ll find a lot of actionable insight from our conversation.

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.
