As dentists start reopening their practices, it becomes increasingly important for them to develop a solid plan for the coming months. In addition to providing updates on insurance reimbursements, PPP and a potentially helpful new tax credit, Art outlines the five most important things to focus on when reopening your dental practice:

  1. Developing a financial plan
  2. Leading your team
  3. Communicating with patients: emphasizing total health and complete care
  4. Evaluating your relationship with insurance companies and PPOs
  5. Tracking metrics to find profit holes in your practice
