The dental world is constantly changing, and it’s hard to keep up. You want your dental practice to be the best it can be, but it’s difficult to stay on top of the ever changing details about insurance rules, running the practice and CDT coding. Those three challenges are enough to make anyone feel caught in an uphill battle where too often the insurance company wins.
Knowledge is crucial to a smooth-running billing process that pays you, not the insurance company. As an outsourced dental billing company, we see all kinds of practices with different billing problems and we certainly see the need for more coding education. It’s not like you’re learning this in dental school!
We share this knowledge at Dental ClaimSupport, in a weekly newsletter called the Dental Post & Core covering all of these topics.
In this article, you will learn the benefits of subscribing to the Dental Post & Core and what kind of valuable information you can get from it to improve your dental practice.

2. You will get the latest information on CDT coding
Ah, the dreaded CDT code set It’s complicated, it’s always being updated, and staying on top of the details can be tedious. However, as you know, correct coding and documentation are necessary to understand. Unfortunately this is another area vital to your success that you don’t learn in dental school. That’s why Dental Claims Academy is a unique educational resource for those trying to stay up to date on dental coding.
