Last week, Gary interviewed his friend Qadeer Ahmed about a Patient Benefits plan that addresses all the ills that are wrong with the current dental insurance system. Let’s face it, the current dental insurance system is broken! The current system suppresses claims. Patients, Dentists and Employers all lose. This is Part II of Gary’s interview with Qadeer Ahmed all about how we are about to enter a new Golden Age of Dentistry. Qadeer brings a deep background in business to the dental profession and he decided to look at the dentistry from a ‘clean slate model’. In doing so, he came up with a five-part plan that will significantly benefit Dentists.

Here are those 5 elements;
1) A coverage plan that actually benefits Patients, Dentists and Employers
2) Co-Management of complex cases
3) Profit Velocity and Quality
4) Capital Equipment available on a cost-per-use basis, and
5) Equity Conversion; The ability to convert equity in your practice to cash.

We truly are about to enter a new Golden Age of Dentistry and this interview will provide you with new ways of thinking about our amazing profession!
