Topic: "Why Aren't All Dental Claims Paid?"
presented  by: Paul Manos, DDS, Dental Director for United Concordia Dental

 
Dental benefits are different than medical benefits and most of us do what our dentists say without question.  Everybody wants to think that their dentists are looking out for the patients’ best interests.  Yet are all of those services really necessary?  If my mouth is healthy, do I really need x-rays every 6 months or 12 months?  If that cracked tooth is not causing any problems, do I really need an extensive crown on it?  What happens when my dentist bills for a service that is not appropriate or not necessary and who makes that determination?  These questions will be answered and much more.
 
1 Hour of CE Credit - Course # 321130
