The Affordable Care Act and its effect on dental practices

Colleen Huff, FAADOM, sits down with us to talk about how the Affordable Care Act is affecting dental practices and the biggest mistakes that dental teams are making when it comes to the ACA. Colleen Huff has been involved with the dental field for almost 22 years and uses her expertise gained from managing to help you understand the Affordable Care Act. She explains that though there has been confusion for almost everyone, there will be those who are willing to learn about it and those who are not, and that will affect the bottom-line of those practices. The biggest mistake, she says, is to ignore it. This could lead to turning away customers that may be able to be helped, or it could mean not being able help patients to your full ability. To be a successful practice, you must avoid these mistakes!
