SAMPLE TWO-DAY PROGRAM SYNOPSIS (This can be customized)
Most dentists are under the misconception, for varying reasons, that medical plan benefits can only be accessed in cases involving trauma. This cannot be farther from the truth. Current medical plans on the market co a wide variety of procedures, including examinations and consultations for simple visits, such as those involving oral cancer screening, exams for minor issues like herpetic lesions, aphthous lesions, tori, Candidiasis and dry mouth, to more complex ones, such as atrophy of the alveolar bone and pneumatization (enlargement) of the sinus as a result of tooth loss. In addition, both surgical and non-surgical treatments of these, and a myriad of other infectious, inflammatory, and pathological problems are covered, including therapeutic (topical) treatments, periodontal surgical services, implant Stage I and II treatment, TMD, orthodontic and sleep apnea appliances, and oral and dental procedures related to traumatic injury.
This two-day customized Presentation will discuss the different medical plans, the basics of medical diagnosis and procedure coding, as well as documentation requirements. Several claim examples for procedures commonly performed in the comprehensive dental office will be presented and discussed. Learn more
