Phil Workman, Dr. Lyuba Taft, Eugene Taft, and Adrian Valente The Secret to Doing More Dentistry and Helping More Patients Smile Now and Pay-Over-Time
Hosted By: Phil Workman, Dr. Lyuba Taft, Eugene Taft, and Adrian Valente
Aired: Tuesday, October 26, 2021
Duration: 1 hour
Sponsored By: Sunbit
A patient comes into their local dentist office with a cracked molar. Rather than asking questions about treatment, they’re more concerned with how much it’s going to cost, afraid they can’t afford it. It’s no surprise that 59% of adults have forgone dental care due to cost.

Access to dental care is a major challenge for dental professionals. According to a survey of thousands of dental practices, the average case acceptance rate is underwhelming at best—for established patients, it’s 50-60%, and for new patients, 25%-35%.

It doesn’t add up. It’s time to improve access to care!

Offering Buy Now, Pay Later (BNPL) is proven to increase case acceptance rates, patient satisfaction, and production. Stop leaving patients underserved and money on the table. Join this webinar to learn how practices like yours have already started tapping into this opportunity.

Learning Objectives:
1. Why case acceptance rates continue to be a challenge, even with traditional financing solutions available.
2. How dentists can leverage a new Buy Now, Pay Later technology that approves over 85% of patients, with no hard credit check.
3. How Buy Now, Pay Later is helping dentists generate 25X more financing production and 150% more patient approvals than traditional financing solutions.
