Mindset and Creating Freedom from Third-Party Payers One Step at a Time With Kleer CEO Dave Monahan


Do you think it’s dangerous to break out of the mold of dealing with third-party payers? Are you nervous about eliminating insurance companies? My guest on this episode is Dave Monahan, the founder and CEO of Kleer, a company that helps dentists create membership plan programs, allowing dentists to offer care plans directly to their patients. He explains why you don’t have to feel anxious about growing your independence from third-party payers while you tap into your expertise as a caregiver who can create the care plans your patients need!


Let’s talk about how we want to look at our businesses with regards to third-party payers. How do we want to look at these things in order to be ready to break free? This episode will help guide you on the steps necessary to develop care plans - which are one piece in creating that freedom from discount plans - for your patients, present them to your team, and market them to your patients. Give your patients the affordable care they want and improve their oral health, while also eliminating the administrative costs of dealing with middlemen by working directly with patients instead. Focus on your business, and listen to this episode to understand why this move can be a smart goal for you and your practice! Listen now to hear how you can liberate your office!
