Developing Insurance Follow-Up From Within
I have had the distinct honor of taking some of ADPC's on-line courses as well as meeting Becky Gerber in person: What a wonderful experience! I was able to successfully transition from a Dentrix background to a new position in an office using EagleSoft practice management software. Becky gave me the knowledge and confidence I needed to be successful. Thank you Becky!
ADPC has a lifetime of experience in the field of dentistry which is professionally and passionately shared with students. Their goal is for professionals in this field to be successful. Becky is a gifted instructor who provides instruction with kindness, compassion and competence. She has the innate ability to blend the clinical aspect of dentistry and the administrative aspect into a streamlined, comprehensive, easy to understand learning experience that is easily applied in 'real-life' dental offices.
The technical side of ADPC is absolutely top notch and the entire on-line process (registration, payment, access to the learning material, access to the instructor, etc...) was delivered with no glitches or technical bugs--the entire experience was seamless.
I look forward to taking more of Becky's courses as well as attending her speaking engagements--she is a valuable resource for all us!
Thank you again Becky!
