Episode : #838: Handling No-Cost Patients

Podcast Description

Just because dentistry is one of your talents doesn’t mean it’s not a worthwhile service. When it comes to friends and family asking for discounts or free treatment, it can get sticky if you’re not prepared. In this episode, Kiera gives three pointers to addressing when someone inevitably drops your name in hopes of a discount:

  1. Recognize your worth as a dental professional

  2. Put a dollar amount to the discounts you’ve given

  3. Create a friends and family fee schedule, then use it
