Medical Providers Working with Oral Physicians

The Presentation

Medical providers need to know how to work with oral physicians (dentists). Technological advances in dentistry have provided more ways than ever to screen, diagnose and treat health conditions that affect the entire body. Have you ever thought about how an active infection, periodontal disease or even occlusion could affect health? What about how health conditions like diabetes, acid reflux and sleep apnea affect the mouth?

Medical providers need to know how diagnostics in dentistry apply to the medical practice. This webinar will review how this collaboration works and what dental procedures are actually required to be billed first to medical.
