CPAs in Towson | Protect Your Practice Against Employee Fraud

Towson CPAs

Did you know that at least one in three dental practices have been victim to some sort of embezzlement? Protect your practice against employee fraud by understanding the tactics involved, and how to watch for them with tips from a Dental CPA.

Check Fraud

Oftentimes, patients will pay for their portion of fees by check. One instance of fraud can happen by a team member instructing the patient to leave the payee section blank, letting them know they have a stamp for the payee section. Then, it’s as simple as writing in their own name or business and depositing the check. To combat this, do not allow the use of payee stamps and ensure that your checks are reviewed carefully, both before and after they are deposited.

Altering Book Transactions

Committing fraud is a two-part process — siphoning money or resources, but also covering up the tracks. As a business owner you need to be aware of both. A fraudulent employee may alter transactions in your accounts receivable to create a false trail that shows payment was made in the right steps. Ensure that any additions, deletions, or adjustments of activity in your accounting or bookkeeping software are properly logged and audited.

Skimming Cash or Patient Credits

A fraudulent employee may be stealing money directly from cash transactions, or indirectly, by refunding patients’ credit balances onto their own credit cards. Both of these examples of fraud are easy to catch with the proper systems in place. Tally your cash balance at the end of every office day and have it confirmed by more than one employee. In addition, ensure a proactive approach to any credit balances that patients might accrue so that they will not remain and be forgotten about.

Quick Tips from a Dental CPA to Protect Yourself

In addition to keeping watch for the potential fraud examples above, here are a few pointers to help avoid others:

  • Reconcile every payment logged in your accounting software by confirming them on the bank’s end.
  • Implement a business credit card to easily track any purchases made for the office, and to reduce the need for reimbursement.
  • Investigate transactional history that does not make logical sense or is overcomplicated.
  • Bring another agency aboard to monitor and control your accounting duties to ensure quality and validity.

If you feel that your business is at-risk for fraud or you have already been a victim to it, contact Dental CPA Allen M. Schiff today to schedule a consultation.

We are searching for a positive, collaborative and team-oriented dentist to join our thriving private practice. We are located in a quiet and affluent area south of the Washington, D.C. metro area. Calvert County is the 13th wealthiest county in the United States. We enjoy a shortened work week because we maximize our time to the fullest. The right fit for us is a person that enjoys learning and being part of a team with a positive outlook and the desire to deliver a wide variety of care. The ideal candidate is an expert multi-tasker, a patient person, and has a great sense of humor!

Our practice utilizes the latest CEREC technology and we are Waterlase certified. We have three hygienists that are Biolase certified, hold RDH certification and provide comprehensive perio care. We have a positive front desk team that works hard to fill your schedule. Our dental assistants are knowledgeable, efficient and are Expanded Function certified. We have an in-house marketing person and believe strongly that efficient marketing is money well spent.

You must enjoy working with people and believe in an oral/whole health philosophy. A compassionate and patient bedside manner is imperative due to a large number of pediatric, geriatric and phobic patients. We are not just a general dental practice, but a family dental practice.

Our charts are paperless and our software is efficient.

We believe strongly in community and giving back to the people that have given us so much. If you believe in family and community, you will fit right in. If you have children, it will be an easy transition for them…the area is friendly, the schools are excellent and crime is low. Calvert County’s history is rich, dating back to 1652. Calvert County is surrounded by water, and the outdoor activities are endless. Washington, D.C., Northern Virginia and Annapolis, MD are a short 35 minute drive away.
