Our CEO’s Column
Why Us?
More specifically, why Prosperident? The longer we are in business, the more we seem to get this question from potential clients. It would be easy to put tongue in cheek and respond “because in our experience (and we have A LOT of experience) bigger is better, and we are not just talking about pizza.”
Maybe the best analogy to adequately explain why you should use a large and experienced firm such as ours, whose sole purpose and function is to find and eliminate financial crimes, a.k.a. embezzlement, against dentists, is this: let’s say you have a great family physician. Your physician is the absolute cream of the crop. Your GP graduated first in their class, they’re always available to you on a moment’s notice, they’re intuitive, knowledgeable, easy to understand, friendly, etc., etc.
Now, suppose you have a sudden medical emergency or you sustain a life-threatening injury. Are you going to rush to your GP’s office or house to seek treatment? My guess is “no.” It would make more sense to call 911 and get yourself to a trauma center ASAP to let the team of professionals there, who deal with nothing but trauma and emergency medicine, attend to you and stabilize you. I’m also willing to bet that you wouldn’t let yourself be delivered to a walk-in-clinic, no matter how reputable, that didn’t have an emergency room, staffed by a trauma team to ensure that you face your best chance of proper diagnosis and recovery.
If you suspect or have confirmed theft in your office, we have the “trauma” team you need to diagnose, treat and restore your practice to health. Prosperident is the world’s largest firm investigating financial crimes against dentists. Dentistry is all we do and I can guarantee that we do it better than anyone else.
