CareCredit is offering a FREE educational audio CD, Examine and Diagnose Your Financial Systems, featuring Lisa Philp, President, Transitions Group, an exclusive partner of Benco Dental. Ms. Philp is a published author, popular speaker and has personally coached over 1,200 dental teams. She is a certified effectiveness trainer, Certified Facilitator in Integrity Selling, a Certified Management Consultant and an authentic, engaging speaker who shares her passion for dentistry combined with practical solutions.
During this informative audio program, Ms. Philp discusses how, within the 44 systems at work within the practice, the financial system is arguably the most important. “The financial systems are the key systems that drive collections, which contribute to the revenue engine of the practice. Every business must have revenue in excess of expenses,” explains Ms. Philp. “Ultimately, if a dental team does not get paid for the dentistry they perform, there is no viable business.” Ms. Philp also details the components of an effective financial system and explains how dental teams can diagnose and fix inefficiencies within the system – starting with the practice’s written financial policy. She also provides techniques that make discussing money with patients easier, proven case acceptance techniques and key benchmarks that indicate failure in the financial system.

RACINE, WI – Science has shown that irrigants are more effective when they are electro-mechanically activated. Acoustic streaming and cavitation of endodontic solutions has been shown to significantly enhance cleansing of difficult anatomy. Studies have shown that low frequency (Sonic) oscillation (160-190Hz) was not sufficient in creating acoustic streaming or cavitation within the canal space.
EndoUltra™ is the only cordless, compact, battery operated piezo ultrasonic (40kHz) activation device. Only EndoUltra™ is capable of producing acoustic streaming and cavitation in small canal spaces, resulting in significantly improved debridement, disruption of biofilm, improved penetration of irrigants into dentinal tubules, and the removal of vapor lock. Resulting in improved outcomes.
