Every time anyone writes or provides a policy for your employee handbook it affects a number of other policies in that document. Writing legally compliant policies that protect your business, comply with various laws, and reflect how you run your business requires intimate knowledge of employment laws at the federal, state, and local levels.

And, now that we’re in the throes of a global health crisis, ensuring that your policies are well-written and compliant with applicable laws is more important than ever before.

After this course, you’ll be better prepared to self-assess and ensure that your policies are not only providing legal protections for your business, but that they are also seen as a positive and helpful set of guidelines for your employees.

Course Learning Objectives:

  • A framework for assessing key employee handbook policies for federal and state compliance
  • The most common employee handbook myths and misunderstandings
  • How having policies in place protects you, your interests, and your employees
  • Which laws affect you and your business and why
  • How COVID-19 has affected policy considerations
  • Which specific policies are good for both employers and employees
  • HR Technology that allows employees to answer their own policy questions, and more

We understand this course may be slightly controversial. After all, many managers of dental practices were told to “pre-appoint everyone”, at a very early point in their career. We get it! Pre-appointing everyone is a habit.

Course Learning Objectives:

  • Share friction, negative symptoms, & consequences, found in dental practices who have pre-appointed all hygiene for an extended period of time.
  • Share why and how these consequences are exacerbated by time, patient volume, and practice marketing strategy.
  • Provide details of a preferred, hybrid version of hygiene schedule management, which will avoid the negative impact of pre-appointing everyone, and allow the practice to grow without friction

Case acceptance in the dental field is the very heartbeat of the practice. You may get 100 new patients per month calling or coming in for an examination, but if none move forward with treatment, your practice could stagnate, or even worse, become a practice that serves patients based on their own emergent situations. The tone of each day will become chaotic and uncertain.

In order to have a high percentage of treatment acceptance, every team member must understand, accept and promote the philosophy of the practice. Communication and consistency are two of the most important aspects of great case acceptance. You must empower and train your team to have influential conversations that empower patients to move forward with treatment. Empowering them through understanding the treatment being recommended, their financial responsibility and by removing barriers to care. That’s where CareCredit’s new Quickscreen – which is integrated into Revenue Well – can help. We’ll show you how to integrate this new feature into your financial conversations, making it even easier for patients to accept recommended care. If you’re ready to empower yourself, your team and your patients so they can more easily say yes to the treatment they want and need, tune in to our Facebook Live to learn more.

Patient communication technology is both a convenience and necessity for providers. When it comes to their dental needs, patients’ point of consideration and points of decision have evolved with performing more extensive research online prior to scheduling an appointment. The patient conversation is no longer a single point in time, but instead is a longer dialogue that is orchestrated over time, both digitally and in-person. Thus, practices need to have a cohesive communication strategy that makes interaction frictionless, continuous, and valuable. With cost being a major barrier to comprehensive care, educating patients on their payment options earlier can lead to less friction later, resulting in happier, healthier, and more loyal patients.

Course Learning Objectives:

  • Find out why practices are evolving from the old way of doing business
  • Learn how and why providers should incorporate payment options within their technology and systems today
  • Recognize ways that CareCredit can help providers/teams
