Dental and Medical Diagnostic Coding
9:00 A.M. - 3:00 P.M. CST
Speaker: Christine Taxin

Following this session, the attendee should be able to:

  • Learn how to develop and document an effective case, while accessing dental insurance wellness benefits and incorporating new patient options for comprehensive treatments.
  • Understand diagnostic codes and how to implement them on dental and medical claim forms, including updating the medical history intake system.
  • Review new treatments and diagnostic tools.

When running your own dental practice, clinical expertise and quality customer service comes first – but what about the behind-the-scenes work? Many dentists and team members struggle to keep up with the complicated world of dental billing and insurance claims while also remaining as profitable as possible. This course will highlight best practices for billing, staying current with yearly codes, taking advantage of medical/dental cross coding, and much more. Dental practices can and should help protect patients from dangerous medical conditions. Dental practices can add new diagnostic tools and treatments to support the general health of patients and increase profits. Learn recommended documentation techniques to support diagnostic and treatment decisions, as well as to prevent problems with medical and dental benefit plans.
