Cracking the Hygiene Code - Friday, August 11, 2017
Presented by DDKS Professional Relations Panel
This seminar is ideal for the entire dental staff, especially for hygienists and front office staff, as it will address the proper methods of submitting commonly used codes for diagnostic & preventive and periodontal procedures including their policies, frequencies, exclusions and limitations. You will hear about the many different plan types that Delta Dental offers and receive information on upcoming 2018 procedure codes.
We will also address how to document records to ensure compliance with the Kansas Dental Board and Kansas Dental Practices Act as well as with the Delta Dental Participation Agreement.
2017 educational seminars are open to all Delta Dental of Kansas participating dentists and their dental office staff. You may register for all seminars at DeltaDentalKS.com/Register. If you have questions, please email PR@deltadentalks.com or contact your area Professional Relations representative.
