Many dentists describe the moment when they realize that a trusted employee is stealing from them as the worst moment in their professional career.
If you are in that position, however badly you feel, there are important steps to take, and many “land mines” to avoid. Here are three important points:
1. The single most important consideration is not to alert the suspect to your concerns. Until you can get professional assistance, acting normally is critical.
2. Back up your computer system and keep the backup off-site and under your control. Do not involve staff in this process. If you don’t know how to do this, contact the support department for your practice management software vendor for assistance.
3. Don’t make any changes to your dental software, banking, payroll or anything else until you can get professional assistance.
