Embezzlement is a sad reality and a crime of opportunity. It is a lot more common than most dentists realize. The reality is that once someone has decided to stick their hands in YOUR pocket, they are now thinking about how they will pull it off. You are busy with patients and they are helping themselves to YOUR hard earned money.
You think it couldn't happen to you? Think again. Per the American Dental Association, surveys reveal that 35 percent of dental practices have been embezzled once, and 17 percent have been victims more than once. These are only the practices that we know about.
Dishonest employees have the advantage in your practice. They know you and they know what practice monitors you are watching, if any.
I will share a number of steps in this course to help you minimize and possibly prevent embezzlement in your practice.
