Five reasons to bill Medicare dental implants and Medicare oral reconstructive surgery right now.

2021-04-13T11:15:45-04:00

Medicare dental implants and medical oral surgery -separating fact from hearsay. Medicare is the single biggest health care payer in the US yet few dental implantology practices leverage this payment system even though it could greatly help patients in their area and their practice financially. Does Medicare pay for oral reconstructive surgery? Yes, Medicare oral surgery benefits are payable for dental implant patients and are available in every US state and territory under general medical necessity provisions.  Just like dental or medical claims of any kind, the patients presenting condition and diagnosis determine whether a legitimate claim exists. Does Medicare pay [...]

2021-04-13T11:29:12-04:00

Want a dental implant only practice? A dental implant only practice or having at least a practice with significantly more full arch dental implant cases is the dream of many clinicians.  If this describes you, the above graphic literally gives away the secret to getting from where you are now to a practice with many full arch dental implant cases or to having a practice devoted to dental implantology. My unique history is that I built my own personal implant only practice and while doing so discovered the interplay in these factors through very expensive and sometimes painful personal education on that [...]

Dental implant case acceptance and full arch (All-on-4) cases every month. Dr. Kathy’s story.

2021-04-13T11:30:48-04:00

What led to an "a-ha" by this highly skilled Implantologist? Dr. Kathy has been building her clinical Implantology skills for years but like most implant dentists going through extensive training there was no focus on dental implant case acceptance nor dental implant advertising.  The lack of specialty advertising for full arch implant cases and dental implant case acceptanc She is now at the point of sitting for the American Board of Oral Implantology exam to qualify for Diplomate status.  So while her skills are at the pinnacle of Implantology, she wasn't using those skills to their fullest.  Historically she has only [...]

Medicare Dental Implants: Who You Gonna Call?

2020-07-28T09:03:21-04:00

Medicare Dental Implants: Who You Gonna’ Call? “Do you take Medicare?” Medicare Dental Implants May Help... This is a common phone call question that arrives to every dental practice in the country on a weekly if not daily basis. The answer 99 times out of 100 is “no” as less than 1% of US dentists are involved with the Medicare insurance system. These patient calls are a sure sign of enormous patient demand. The most recent official count from the Kaiser Foundation and CMS shows that there were 59.8 million recipients as of 2018; a [...]

Dental Practice Bonus Systems for Big Case and Trust Based Practices

2019-10-21T13:48:55-04:00

Dental Practice Bonus Systems for Big Case and Trust Based Practices There are a lot of dental bonus systems floating around and I’ve seen most of them.  Quite a few will work for a year or two but then MOST fall by the wayside because they are too easily gamed by the participants. I’ve only seen two variations on dental practice bonus systems that work for the long-term (decades) and we’ve adapted and refined both of these dental bonus systems for our members over the past 10 years. Here are the essential keys to understand about [...]

Building a Dental Team – What Google Says

2019-10-21T13:47:56-04:00

Building a Dental Team – What Google Says Our member dentists successfully use Google to build their practices on many levels including building their dental team. Many are amassing large stockpiles of Google reviews using this technology that makes getting hundreds of reviews annually as easy as seating a patient in an operatory. Dentists who are trusted the most tend to have the most reviews.  Why?  Because reviews are one of the measurement of trust by many consumers when they do their “homework” on services and products they are considering purchasing. Others are making sure their [...]

Lessons from Dental Meetings Like the ICOI Part 1- Online Dental Practice Reviews I’m one of the few consultants that has spent 20 years treating patients first hand.
