Let’s be real. Much of the dental care that people receive is actually medical care! Right? If you believe in oral systemics, then you need to get your mind focused on billing medical insurance first…..always! Dental care for the medical health of the body is medical care that absolutely and always must be billed first to the patient’s medical insurance. Stop wasting your time and your patients’ limited dental benefits trying to get payments from their dental insurance with their $1000 annual limits and their corrected /adjusted fees. Bill medical insurance first, where there are often no limits and fewer adjustments. This is the only way to practice!
Do you think it’s impossible to get benefits for a saliva pathogen test? Well guess again!!!
Comparison of dental insurance v’s medical insurance. Dental Insurance should be considered as supplemental policy.
Patient assessment and screening process. How this translates to medical billing.
Conditions medical insurance companies will consider. It is not all about drill and fill!

Many aspiring Total Health Dental Practices are frustrated by their inability to bridge the medicine-dentistry gap in their own communities, let alone gain practice building patient referrals from their local medical teams. Our challenge is two-fold: (1) To elevate the medical team’s understanding of oral disease and its ramifications on systemic disease. (2) To improve our ability to speak the medical team’s language, and to gain recurring co-referral relationships.
Take it from someone who, along with her team, has worked toward this goal for a decade and finally feels successful. Susan will short cut you to the must-dos, the obvious mistakes, the pros and cons of several different ideas, and her team’s proven strategies for success.
