Conference Targets Managers of Dental Offices

on Tue, Jun 12, 2018 @ 09:38 AM By | Harrison Friedes | 0 Comments | Dentists Events / Conferences
My first grade self was in the back of mom's car. As usual, I was contemplating what I could do to earn my freedom from the unwanted tasks my parents kept serving me. A conference for managers of dental offices was the furthest thing from my mind. “Hey Mom? Why do we have to brush our teeth?" Mom answered, "Because … your teeth will rot if you don't." On principle, I wasn't willing to let that sit: "Cavemen didn't and they were fine!" I sat back, anticipating permanent liberation from dental hygienic practices. "Yeah," Mom replied, "and cavemen died at 30." That day, I learned that (1) being a caveman was no longer a realistic opportunity for my future; and (2) teeth and dentists are important. Enter the 14th Annual Dental Management Conference on July 19 – 21 in San Antonio, Texas — an excellent choice for continuing education units (CEU), networking opportunities, and learning invaluable material in the company of other managers of dental offices.

Explaining Dental Insurance to Patients

on Mon, Dec 11, 2017 @ 03:29 PM By | Joe Gargiulo | 0 Comments | Dentists
It’s important for dental offices to determine a simple method of explaining dental insurance to patients. There are many providers and plans for individuals paying their own insurance as well as those covered by employer-based policies, so it’s easy for patients to not fully grasp all of the moving parts. It helps to have a fluent office manager or front-of-house person who can review each patient’s plan and distill the detailed information down to terms that make sense. Surprisingly, many dental offices assume patients understand the dynamics of dental insurance and don’t review coverage with new patients in advance of the first exam or treatment. That’s not the right way to start a new relationship.
