ADA webinar features introduction to dental insurance

The ADA is offering a free educational webinar in February to assist new and existing dental office managers, staff and dentists who are looking for guidance and insights as they try to navigate the dental insurance maze.
Dental Insurance 101: A Beginners Course for Office Staff streams Feb. 23 from noon to 1 p.m. Central time. 1 CERP credit will be awarded.
 
This webinar will explain the basics of how preferred provider organization plans and networks operate so that both new and existing office staff will be better able to support patients with these plans.

Amrita Patel, D.D.S., a general dentist from New York, will present this educational course.

Topics for discussion include:

• Preferred provider organization plan design.
• Common contract clauses and processing policies that can impact revenue.
• Plan terminology.
• Coordination of benefits and COB write-offs.
• How to file an effective claim denial appeal.
• How to talk to patients about dental insurance.
• Where to find ready-to-use educational resources to help practices succeed

Dr. Patel, a 2011 graduate of the NYU College of Dentistry, is a member of the ADA Council on Dental Benefit Programs. She is also part of the 2020-21 class of the ADA Institute for Diversity in Leadership.

The ADA has also created a new online landing page to help dentists find answers to some of their most vexing dental insurance questions at ADA.org/dentalinsurance.

Below is the video of our GKAS Event in May
at the Bayview Ave. School in Freeport

  • GKAS 2022 at the Bayview Ave. School Video Our 2022 GKAS event was held at the Bayview Ave. School of Arts & Science in Freeport, NY. This was our first "in-school" event in the 19 year history of our program as well as the first time we did a combined indoor and outdoor event. The 550 students there received free dental exams, fluoride treatments, sealants, oral hygiene instructions and nutrition education by our 100 volunteers. The Lion’s Club of Long Beach also provided free eye exams. We thank our wonderful Volunteers as well as Dr. Mary Garguilo, Principal of the Bayview Ave. School, Mr. Stanley Bergman, CEO of Henry Schein, Stony Brook School of Dental Medicine, Northwell Health, the New York State Dental Foundation, Sports Depot, The Long Beach Lion's Club, Fidelis Care, Liberty Dental, and Vivo Entertainment for their help in making this day possible as well as Michael Krien of Patkin Photography for putting together this wonderful video.
