"Our office started implementing EFTs slowly with one payer at a time until we had our systems in place," said Sara Stuefen, D.D.S., one of the webinar speakers. "Now, we take every opportunity we can to receive EFTs. Our experience has been that payments are faster and safer."
Dr. Stuefen is a general dentist who practices in Iowa, as well as the chair of the Iowa Dental Association's Medicaid Committee and a past member of the ADA Council on Dental Benefit Programs. She lectures to dental students across the country as part of the ADA Success program and currently participates in the ADA Institute for Diversity in Leadership.
Dr. Stuefen will be joined in the webinar by Brad Smith, senior director of industry engagement and advocacy at Nacha, which governs the ACH Network, the network that connects all U.S. financial institutions to allow them to transfer money electronically.
