Ken Metsky,CPA and dental specialist at Citrin & Cooperman (Springfield,NJ) has provided dozens of talks to local study clubs and offers you the following financial tips:

  • Check your bank statement personally (&have it delivered to you home address),look for debits/credits not belonging to you,reconcile it monthly including credit card transactions!
  • Never allow anyone but yourself to authorize a credit to any patients’ account.
  • Meet with your CPA at least quarterly or semi-annually to discuss the latest tax savings and practice savings available!

Ken can be reached at 973-218-7148,Ken is a member of the Dental Resource Alliance.



More financial practice building tips from Asteto:


  • Constantly monitor your bank statements for charges and mistakes(!),it is exceptionally easy for almost anyone to attain your checking acct number and routing number, once someone has this, they can potentially pay tons of bills with it!
  • If you take in a LOT of American Express charges, Amex has a program where they will ‘front’ you most of your amex receipts (revenue) a month in advance for a very small nominal fee! Go to: americanexpress.com/expressfinancing

If you are not taking Amex from your patients, you need to so patients don’t have a reason not to pay(!) and the rates have come down substantially,so call Ross Selby (Amex NJ rep) directly to find out how your office can benefit: 973-219-9778


  • Save 15% or more (like we did) on your electric & gas: go to viridian.com/builders (my own personal site) to become a viridian gas or electric customer,I was introduced to this from a close friend and saved even more than the previous company I switched to (years ago) from PSE&G etc. And if you don’t want to switch to Viridian,then consider any utility wholesaler(nothing changes,just your bill!) from the long time established ones!
