All the Answers to Your Burning Dental Accounting Questions
Have you played around with the idea of a dental accountant this year? Or maybe it is a 2021 resolution? Whether it’s a short or long term goal, you may have some burning questions and needed answers before moving forward. You’re in luck — all of your much needed answers are right here.
Q. Do I have to change my software systems?
A. You will certainly want to make sure that your dental accountant is knowledgeable with your practice management software. The accountant needs to confidently navigate the software to ensure accuracy. Fun fact, eAssist Dental Accounting services can port your accounting software over to QuickBooks online — for free.
Q. Who actually handles my money?
A. This entirely depends on you. Dental accountants can help with payroll and paying other bills, but usually don’t physically handle money. eAssist Dental Accounting services sets your practice up with a HIPAA compliant way to scan in your bills that you want paid so you can mark that off your to-do list every month with minimal effort.
Q. Do I have to give up my current accountant?
A. Not if you don’t want to. If you have a great relationship with your current accountant — but they just aren’t dental savvy — you can hire a dental accountant that only helps reconcile your electronic-fund transfers (EFT) with your bank account. Because we understand that you may already have a trusted accountant that helps with the majority of your financial services, eAssist Dental Accounting services offers EFT reconciliation as a stand-alone service if that is all your practice needs.
Q. What if I want to have a dental accountant help me pay my bills, but not necessarily every bill?
A. When interviewing a dental accountant, ask them how much they can tailor their services to your needs. Most of the time they may be an all-or-nothing accountant. eAssist Dental Accounting services, however, has CPA certified, trusted accountants that can address your specific needs and give you the financial peace of mind you deserve, allowing you to focus on dentistry and the growth of your practice.
It is not uncommon at all to outsource your dental accounting. You already outsource your lab work and studies have shown that outsourcing certain areas of your practice can help keep your overhead manageable while getting you optimum results. If you are already outsourcing your dental billing — or are planning to — eAssist Dental Accounting services works seamlessly with the Dental Billing services to help put your office over the top.
Make sure that you don’t let any of your insurance payments fall through the cracks from this day forward. eAssist Dental Accounting services is dental accounting created by a dentist just like you, so we have your best interests in mind at all times.
