MORNING COURSE TITLE #1: A Secret Pay Raise: How Embezzlers Think and Act (This course is for doctors only!)
Morning Course Description #1: While many dental teams are loyal and honest, it only takes one desperate individual to financially ruin a dental practice. While internal controls are useful and important, they have limitations and may not be as effective as the doctor thinks. Many doctors fail to discover fraud and embezzlement until significant damage has occurred. Dr. Little shares some of his embezzlement cases as teaching tools that take you into the mindset of an embezzler.
Because specific fraud methodologies are openly discussed and demonstrated, this presentation is appropriate for dentists only.
Morning Course Objectives #1:
- Recognize the profile of a typical embezzler.
- Understand what leads to embezzlement in dental offices.
- Analyze the strengths and limits of internal controls strategies.
- Identify the additional actions doctors need to take beyond internal controls.
- Gain access to a behavioral assessment to identify red flag behaviors.

MORNING COURSE TITLE #2: What Did They Say? Communication in the Office and With the Patient (This course is for the entire office.)
Morning Course Description #2: So often we think we understand the message from the back to the front and vice versa. Having everyone on the “same page” is key for less mistakes, better cohesiveness, and improved case acceptance. It is more than “talk”, it the verbiage, the body language and how others read into our message.
Morning Course Objectives #2:
- Understand communication and different communications skills.
- Recognize the value of relationships and the impact it has in the office and on making dental decisions.
- Evaluate information needed for effective co-diagnosing during the patient appointment.
- Discuss ways to enhance team handoffs to promote a better patient experience.
