Dealing with dental insurance for our patients can be both a blessing and a curse, as it helps patients afford much needed orthodontic treatment but necessitates substantial work on our part.
A systematic and consistent insurance protocol is imperative for your orthodontic practice to be profitable. Whether your practice accepts assignment or not, or is in-network or not, this presentation will help clear up some of the challenging aspects of the process. We will discuss terminology used in insurance submission, review specific dental insurance codes, and share many tips and tricks to help you maximize receipt of insurance benefit payments.
As coding can be quite confusing Dr. Depew will discuss how to accurately use the various CDT and ICD-10 codes you may use in your practice as well as the implications of the Affordable Care Act. Please note, that some Insurance Codes will change from year-to-year.

Join Dr. Dan Bills for this Complimentary Business of Orthodontics webinar, Virtual Insanity! Virtual Orthodontic Visits Before, During, and After a Global Pandemic — As with many practices, Dr. Dan Bills was forced to develop a complete virtual treatment platform to continue to manage patients’ treatment during mandated closure during the pandemic. Serendipitously, Dr. Bills and his team learned a lot about the potential for virtual visits to enhance (not replace) the in-office patient experience to help deliver quality orthodontic care in an effective, efficient, and convenient manner — a mindset change which wouldn't have been explored pre-pandemic.
Immediately following Dr. Bills, Teledentistry Legislation expert Amber Lovatos will discuss Bridging the Knowledge Gap and Navigating Teledentistry Policy. Amber will walk you through the considerations for participating in teledentistry; state practice acts, billing, insurance reimbursement, legislation, codes, HIPAA, technology, licensure, barriers, and other consideration.
