Course Overview:

Success with medical claims is a full dental-team effort and it requires more than knowledge of medical codes. This course is designed for the dentist, assistant and front desk billing staff. Dental practices must navigate the smooth flow of information beginning with the doctor’s diagnosis to the properly documented claim submitted for payment. Day I will be the intro to understanding the basics as well as Global Policies that greatly increases the success rate of medical claims filed. Day Two will cover coding for TMD/sleep apnea as well as for advanced grafting procedures. These topics will be covered in this course: medical coding scenarios for hard tissue surgeries (grafting and reconstruction/implants), trauma, appliances (TMD/OSA), and medically necessary dental restorations (crowns, buildups, root canals, etc.). A systematic approach to the claims and documentation process simplifies the most complex clinical coding situations. Once mastered, the path to payment becomes routine.

Course Objectives:

1. Understand Global Policies and their impact on the claim process 2. Understand medical and dental coding for surgeries 3. Understand medical and dental coding for appliances 4. Understand medical coding for maxillofacial trauma 5. Understand medical coding for medically necessary dental restorations
