Course Outline

Bill will share his secrets from decades of experience:

• “Hiltz’s Axioms” – important guideposts for you to follow
• Easy to do “5-Minute Dental FraudBusters
• How to properly diagnose Embezzlement Red Flags
• and more!

You probably have heard the statistics; they are not good. 

The American Dental Association reported in their “2018 CDP Survey on Employee Theft in the Dental Practice” that 49% of dentists are embezzled and 46% are embezzled more than once.

That number is higher due to under-reporting and most experts agree that at least 60% of dentists are embezzled.

PART 1: “A Typical Case of Dental Embezzlement”

Participants will be taken on a guided tour of a “typical dental embezzlement case”.

Drawing upon his experience and case files, Mr. Hiltz will describe the most common embezzlement schemes; how they were perpetrated and more importantly, the warning signs that were missed.

Did You Know? Most embezzlers are first time offenders who usually have worked at the practice for a few years or more, until they earn the trust of the dentist and become familiar with the way things work, and don’t work.

Participants will learn why certain fraud schemes can go undetected for years and result in staggering losses.

PART 2: Recognizing and Understanding Embezzlement Red-Flags

Employees who steal from the practice often display behavioral traits associated with their fraudulent conduct.

In 92% of cases the embezzler exhibited at least one behavioral red flag, and in 57% of cases multiple red flags were observed before the fraud was detected.

Understanding behavioral red flags will help practice owners improve their chances of detecting fraud early and minimizing their loss.

Participants will be introduced to operational red flags and statistical red flags and why they are early warning signs that something may be wrong.

The Presenter will provide participants with a checklist of important things they should and should not do when confronted with the real or likely possibility of employee embezzlement.
