How To Steal From A Dentist 2.0
If you are a dentist, the likelihood that you will be the target of embezzlement during your career is greater than 60%. That’s right. GREATER than 60%! As if this statistic isn’t bad enough, it is even more likely that the embezzler in your practice will be a long-time, trusted member of your staff. So what is a dentist to do?
In this interactive presentation, attendees will be given some alarming facts about this serious and personally-directed crime as well as proven strategies to empower them to take back control of their office’s financial well-being.
Using actual dental embezzlement case files as teaching tools, attendees will be able to evaluate the cases presented and then interact with the presenter as he discusses the myths and misunderstandings surrounding dental embezzlement and guides participants through basic, yet effective strategies to avoid being a part of the “60%” statistic.
