This course is designed to cross-train the entire dental team (both admin and clinical) with knowledge and skill of the day-to-day business operations of a dental practice. Everything starts with the first phone call and obtaining the necessary information to prepare for the patient’s visit to your office. What is done on the front end affects everything on the back end--even treatment planning. It is essential to understand dental insurance plans whether you participate in them or not. Many billable procedures are being done daily that are not billed out because the dental team didn’t know “there is a code for that.”
Effective communication, scheduling, treatment planning, patient education, billing, legal chart documentation, risk management, understanding the numbers of a profitable dental practice along with effective marketing are all important components of a successful dental practice. THERE IS A CODE FOR THAT!
- Learn effective patient communicate communication skills and strategies.
- Understand scheduling challenges and protocols to overcome them.
- Understand dental insurance and overview of how to properly code dental procedures.
- Importance of patient education in treatment planning.
- Legal chart documentation and risk management.
4 Credit Hours
