Do you know how to prevent embezzlement in your office?  
When it comes to protecting your dental practice from embezzlement, well run offices will usually detect an embezzler much sooner than disorganized offices.  Learn how to identify the warning signs to keep your practice safe.  Presenting this information is CPA and former CDA director of finance, Jennifer Nieto owner of Best Card, LLC.

Are you running the right financial reports to detect internal fraud?
Monthly reports, annual reports...does it ever end?  Learn how running good reports can protect your office and why they are vital to your office's success.  Pat Rosenzweig, with Mosaic Management Professionals, will help you prioritize which reports need to be reviewed on a regular basis and why.

Food and beverages will served at 6:00 p.m.  Presentations will begin promptly at 7:30 p.m.  These presentations will be both onsite and streamed live online.  Space is limited.
