Dear DrBicuspid Member,
One of the most important ways to build revenue while building patient trust is a periodic or comprehensive oral evaluation. But many practices do not keep track of how many of these exams they conduct each month. Alitta Boechler of Sikka Software looks at the long-term totals of these exams. How does your practice measure up? Find out here.
Also this week on DrBicuspid.com, a Nebraska dentist was one of more than 400 people charged with healthcare fraud on July 13 by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and Department of Health and Human Services. The defendants allegedly billed the U.S. government approximately $1.3 billion in fraudulent services. Learn more here.
Did you know you can receive continuing education (CE) credits by reading certain DrBicuspid.com articles? Our latest CE offering is from an article about how well CAD/CAM-fabricated, implant-supported single crowns hold up over the longer term. A new study reported results over a five-year follow-up period. Read more here, and get your CE credits here.
If you're like many members of the healthcare community, you've probably heard the term "integrated healthcare" more and more frequently in recent months. But what is integrated healthcare? And as a dental care provider, why should you care? Scott Towers, Anthem's president for dental, clears up some misconceptions about the phrase and spells out how it can benefit your practice and your patients. Read more here.
