AADGP Insight Groups
An Idea Whose Time Has Come
Running a Dental Group Practice today has never been more complex. With navigating new governmental compliance matters, ever changing insurance carrier landscape, competitive challenges and who could forget, a world-wide pandemic, you would need to spend 24 hours a day just to keep abreast of what is happening in our industry.
That is why we are proud to announce the formulation of the AADGP Insight Groups. Insight Groups are collections of six to ten non-competing, like-sized Dental Group Practices that agree to share key indicators about their practice with other members. Each group is run by a professional moderator who assures that the group is moving in a positive direction. To become a member of an Insight Group potential members are vetted by the existing members of the group to make sure that the potential new member is willing to commit the time and energy to participate in the activities of the group. A new member must also be willing to share key statistics (all confidentially of course) with the other group members who in turn share their information.
