Attendees gain understanding and skills required to protect the financial and clinical integrity of the practice while increasing patient compliance and taking their practices to the next level.  •Discover why an in-depth knowledge of patient benefits is essential to the treatment planning and case acceptance processes •Learn how to implement proper billing procedures to mitigate the risk of being accused of insurance fraud •Recognize the significance of comprehensive diagnostic information •Illuminate how using adjunctive services can enhance the standard of care. •Acquire phrases and terms that will get your claim paid… or denied!

Dentist: $399.00,  Staff Member: $299.00

#503 - HIPAA: Highlights, Hoopla and Hooey

This course has no additional fee.

We’ve all heard about HIPAA, and it has become a big part of our daily lives. Still, many practices do not understand the new regulations and believe they are compliant if they have a patient sign a Notice of Privacy Act. The new HIPAA Omnibus Rule became effective March 26, 2013.  Dental practices are required to be compliant (as of September 23, 2013).  
Putting together a comprehensive HIPAA protocol and policy program can be a daunting task. In this course, learn the required changes to the Notice of Privacy Practices Form, the financial implications for willful neglect, why a daily data backup is no longer enough, and the communications that must not be sent via email or text. Gain a better understanding of the steps required to achieve compliance and protect both patients and the practice.  
HIPAA: Highlights, Hoopla and Hooey
Program Objectives: •Review the steps to mandatory HIPAA compliance •Discover what is included in comprehensive risk analysis •Determine what functions the Privacy Officer, Security Officer, and Technology Officer are responsible for •Learn who Covered Entities and Business Associates are and why it matters •Recognize the new required changes to the Notice of Privacy Practices Form •Know who you must have a Business Associate Agreement with •Understand breach notification: who must be notified and when •Identify how to avoid fines that could place the practice in financial ruin •Acquire the skills to manage and resolve privacy complaints

#103 - Protect Your Patients and Practice from Prions, Viruses, and Systemic Disease
William Nordquist DMD MS

This course has no additional fee.

Recent studies are now pointing toward herpesviruses as an extremely important component of periodontal disease, as well as, Alzheimer’s disease. Similar, if not, identical folded-over prions implicated in Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease (CJD) and “mad cow disease” [bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE)] are also the hallmark of Alzheimer’s Disease and diabetes. To exacerbate an already complicated biofilm mixture, oral spirochetes are reported to be the predominate active bacterial constituent encased within Beta Amyloid(Aβ) in Alzheimer’s disease and diabetes.

These serious factors weave together to form a complicated web that at least partially explains why Alzheimer’s disease and diabetes have been shrouded in mystery for decades.
