As our patient’s health care providers, we KNOW the importance of never letting insurance companies influence our diagnosis and treatment recommendations based on reimbursement. But many of us have fallen victims of this very thing. Sometimes what we think is helping the patient and the practice can have big consequences and outcomes.

Like many practices, they were sometimes alternating perio maintenance with adult prophies trying to “maximize” the patient’s insurance benefits. During private coaching together we were able to re-establish the Power of Perio Maintenance, not only for the patients’ health but the practice health as well. In the table below, it is easy to see how providing the right service to match the disease positively impacted everyone in just six short months!
