About The Event

Have you ever wondered about the complex world of insurance claims and billing for implants? How do those other dentists make their millions? Which insurance plans pay for implants? Why is the administrative team always on the phone with the insurance companies? When are implants covered by medical plans?

Billers are treasure hunters! We spend our careers chasing money – from insurance companies and patients. It can be a tough job, but there are proven methods and best practices which make the processes easier than they appear.

Join us for an overview of the revenue cycle from procedure to profit.


1. Learn when procedures can be billed to medical and why.

2. Learn about the medical claims process and how it differs from the dental claims process.

3. Understand pre-authorizations, verification and gap exceptions in the medical claims world.

4. Identify how you can make the reimbursement process easier and faster.
