Coding errors are predictable in today’s dental practice. Learn the top coding errors and how not to make them.

Dealing with dental insurance is overwhelming, but key strategies can save time, prevent hassles, and keep you out of jail. The course will teach essential tools to properly file dental insurance claims.
