Fall Forum 2012
The ODEA Fall Forum is an annual event that brings Dental Administrators - experts in the administrative aspects of dentistry and a broad spectrum of Business Partners together all in one place.
In October, more than 200 dental professionals from all over Oregon attended the Fall Forum to learn about the most current coding and billing information from expert Maria Tatman, Director of Staff Development for Insurance Solutions Newsletter.
In addition, over 25 Business Partners from the dental industry were on hand with valuable knowledge and resources that included all facets of running a stream-lined front office.
During this day-long event, Dental Administrators and Dentists alike received a wealth of updated information that will enable their offices to bill insurance quickly and accurately, while avoiding the pitfalls of filing inaccurate claims. As everyone in the industry knows, dental insurance can be a quagmire for anyone who does not have a finger of the pulse of frequent changes. From changes in CPT coding, evaluation codes, caries risk factors, and common billing errors, attendees learned important information to improve the insurance billing process. Improved insurance billing leads to reduced aged insurance claims and better cashflow!
In an ever-changing industry, it is important to stay on top of current information. In the next few years, there are big changes afoot in the area of dental coding. The ODEA Fall Forum is the perfect place to get accurate and up-to date information that you need. Watch for next year’s event date in October 2013!
We had great speakers, topics, and contributors for our Study Clubs (Interaction Meetings) last year. These are a great way to learn more and to mingle with other members. We have Study Clubs in the Salem and Portland area. Study Clubs are once a month continually during the year (Except for October and December).
