087: Wendy Askins – The Criminal Running Your Practice
Welcome to another episode of The Dentalpreneur. On today’s show we are talking with Wendy Askins. Wendy is the senior investigator at the world’s largest dental embezzlement firm, Prosperident. Wendy has over 25 years experience in the dental field, has an MBA, and degrees in physiology and criminology. This makes her uniquely qualified for her field.
All of that and more on today’s episode of The Dentalpreneur.
More About This Show:
Wendy explains on this episode that 25 years ago she got started in the dental field because she needed a job. As fate would have it early in her career, she worked at an office that was being embezzled from. Seeing the disaster that happened in her own office helped push Wendy into this career as a Dental Embezzlement Investigator.
In this episode you’ll hear:
- How to spot an embezzler
- Steps to take to minimize your risk of being preyed upon by an embezzler
- Signs that someone on your team is actually stealing from you
- How dental embezzlement is more common than you think, the ADA, in 2004, put the numbers around 65% of offices are embezzled from but after Wendy went to her records she believes the number is actually closer to 80%
On March 31-April 1, 2017, at The Dental Success Summit 2017 , I’ll be uncovering the formula that can help any dentist to immediately increase the order and profitability of their dental practice. I’ll also be sharing how to predictably open multiple dental practices and transition them for a huge profit and perpetual residual income.
