We invited Chris to appear as a guest on our podcast because we believe that his “Patient Experience” training is needed in both Fee For Service and PPO practices. The patient experience in general is a key ingredient to transitioning from a PPO practice to a fully insurance independent dental office. Chris shares great tips and suggestions on how you can solicit patient referral opportunities by making sure that patients first have a great experience with you and your team.
