My brother knows more about money than most dentists...


​

Hey Friends,

It is memorial day weekend here and my family flew in to visit!

That's my brother Rajan with my daughter Naira! It is the first time they are meeting and they've been having a blast with each other.

So as you can see my brother is pretty young - but don't let that fool you.

He got a job with align earlier this year and is in their sales associate program.

He is on track to be a future territory manager.

He was 1 of 100 applicants for a 10 person program and he got the job.

In February he moved to Raleigh, NC by align HQ and has been learning the ins and outs of the aligner industry.

What shocked me is after 2 weeks he called me and started talking to me about TEETH.

When I say that I mean he was asking about dental anatomy... using words like "cusps, mesial, distal..."

I was like dude are you in dental school or learning sales?

Apparently they are giving their reps a crash course on all things dental, testing them on the material AND making them prepare presentations on it.

I was very impressed and now after 3 months he took everything to the next level.

When I picked him up from the airport I asked what was the latest thing he's been learning about.

The other week he had to put together a research presentation on a topic that most dentists are unfamiliar with...

Third. Party. Financing.

Some of you are reading this and don't even know what that means...

I know when I was in my early years of practicing I didn't really understand it either.

Then as I learned a little more about it when I started doing aligners and implants I still didn't REALLY understand it.

In my mind it was a magical way for patients who didn't have a lot of money right now to be able to get someone else to pay you all the money then they owe them the money spread out over a period of time.

So I'm a dentist and that was my level of understanding of something SUPER IMPORTANT... how to get paid for services.

I'm not ashamed to share it because I know i'm not alone.

My brother went on to breakdown exactly how these financing solutions work.

They go based off credit scores, then if the patient falls within a credit range they get access to better interest rates or longer periods of time to re-pay the money.

Regardless of that... YOU get paid UPFRONT within 2-3 days. Amazing.

The company handles collecting the money from the patient.

This is HUGE because alternative options are either YOU have to break up payments and have your front desk track down people for money

OR

The patient doesn't move forward with treatment because they don't have enough money to pay the $5-6k upfront.

So this is a no brainer right?

Well some of you are thinking - well they 3rd party financing company takes a percentage from the money they give you.

This is true.

But on average it is right around 8%.

So I asked my brother how he breaks this down with dentists.

He said "Well if you are having patients pay in full - you are most likely giving them a 5% discount... so what is an extra 3% discount to ensure you get paid up front and don't even have to worry about collecting any money? This way you can help MORE patients because they can actually afford $200 a month for 24 months vs giving you all $5k upfront."

My mind was blown.

It's so true.

With this mindset you lower the barrier of entry for MORE patients and all you have to sacrifice is.... 3% of $5000? That's $150. lol

Now if you couple 3rd party financing with my "EZ Start Method" you can 10x your case acceptances.

Basically you ask for $250 to start treatment with patients - easy right?

If you want to know more about the EZ start method and a proven strategy to offer aligners profitably and predictably while decreasing chair time.... register for my new free masterclass here πŸ‘‡πŸ½

Hey Friends, I am reading Dan Martell's book - Buy Back Your Time and I am absolutely hooked. He talks about how valuable your time is and how you can make the most of it by delegating certain tasks to other people. Your time is worth a dollar amount. You have an hourly rate and you calculate it by taking your income and dividing by 2,000 (hours). That number is your hourly rate. Take that number and divide it by 4 That is your buy back rate. If you can pay someone that amount of money per...

Hey Friends, On Thursday Neha and I were officially THOSE people. We were the people with a crying baby on the plane... twice. We took Naira on her first plane ride and had a connecting flight in Atlanta. There was a delay, there were tears (Naira's lol), but we made it safely. To the parents reading this you know EXACTLY what this feeling feels like. To the people without kids... bless your soul. It's funny because before we had Naira I used to get annoyed when babies would cry on the plane....
