You have to pay for advertising and wait for patients to find you. But when you join Affordable Care as an Affordable Dentures Implants practice owner, you sign your contract and walk into the building already set. You're not putting money down or getting a loan. Affordable Care has advertising in place to get the word out. You just hit the ground running. When you join, Affordable Care tells you it's all about the patients, and they mean it. It's almost like someone is giving you a practice and saying, 'Just go in there and make people happy.” — Dr. Olajumoke O. Adedoyin, DDS, MICOI, MAAIP, Cartersville, GA
