Category 1 – 3 CE Points
Location: Living Arts Centre (see below)
Recognizing that the ODA Suggested Fee Guide is an important part of running a business both ethically and economically, this session is designed so that dentists can accurately and effectively interpret the Guide for General Practitioners and gain a better understanding about the world of dental insurance. Participants will hear best practices in choosing the correct procedure codes, fee development and communications with both patients and third parties.
By the end of this session, participants will be able to:
– Identify and apply principles required to develop and communicate fees and report services using the ODA Suggested Fee Guide, acknowledging the link to professional conduct
– Identify the roles and responsibilities of the dentist as they relate to dental plans
– Be familiar with the key aspects and the importance of record keeping and documentation as it relates to reporting and communicating with third party payers
