Dental Embezzlement News from Prosperident
Issue #60 — August 2017
Announcement! Announcement!
It is the fifth anniversary of Prosperident’s newsletter and to celebrate we are doing something special!
We recently made some major improvements to our popular Embezzlement Risk Assessment Questionnaire (ERAQ). This tool allows you to assess the probability that you are being embezzled.
The new version features significantly enhanced reporting and some improved metrics. It consists of 40 yes / no questions and takes less than 15 minutes.
We will be selling the new version of the ERAQ in our electronic store for $129 starting on Labor Day, but until then, it is yours at no cost.
So what are you waiting for? Click HERE to be taken to the Assessment.

Prosperident’s Office Protection System
You asked for it. We delivered.
 

For a long time, people have asked us if we can do something to control embezzlement before it happens.
So we are pleased to introduce Prosperident’s Office Protection System (“OPS”).
The OPS Program is our best, most up-to-date, most effective way to provide you with a comprehensive review of more than 25 policy and procedural systems you use in your office (all having embezzlement implications). OPS is not a software application, but rather an in-depth investigation and analysis performed by one of our experienced fraud examiners.
Special introductory pricing is available until September 15.
Please CONTACT US to get started or obtain more information.
A Note From Our CEO
I hope you are having a great summer. I’m enjoying following my 15-year old son around the continent as he plays basketball. As I write this, he is in San Diego playing for the Canadian team in the Indie World Championships. Oh, to be a teenager again…
But now that I am an adult, I sometimes have weightier concerns than playing basketball.
One of the things that has been on my mind is how we can help dentists “get ahead of” embezzlers. Many people have said something to us along the lines of “instead of just being the go-to people when embezzlement happens, why can’t you help me set up practice systems properly now so that I am less likely to be a victim?”.
Over the past quarter-century, we have learned a lot about the systemic weaknesses that embezzlers exploit, and we built that knowledge base into our new product, Prosperident’s Office Protection System.
For more information on how we can help you protect your practice, give us a call or send us an email.
Have a great summer! Thanks, as always, for reading.
