How Dental Practices Can Get Paid Faster

Tired of playing patient debt collector for your dental practice? We’ve got 4 tips to give your revenue a healthy boost and your staff a much needed break from talking to your patient’s voicemail boxes. 

The average dental practice billing cycle is 90 days. This is largely due to manual processes like mailing invoices and playing collection phone tag. Automation tools like text reminders can shorten this cycle to 5 days on average.

Shorten Your Billing Process

Business Insider estimates that paper checks will completely disappear by 2026. Offering multiple ways for patients to pay digitally - text, email, patient portal, etc -  is not only a way to get paid faster, but to stay competitive.

Bank On Digital Payments

Automating charges to a card on file not only generates a steadier stream of recurring revenue, it increases your treatment acceptance rates and opens the door to more expensive procedures that patients may not otherwise be able to afford up front.

Offer In-House Payment Plans

Not all billing software is created equal and not every dental PMS offers robust payment tools that enable you to offer in-house payment plans, manage insurance claims, and post post payments to the ledger automatically. Adit can!
