Accounts receivable and dental insurance claims processing can be difficult for any dental office – even those with the most experienced team members. Having a team of professionals with advanced training and experience to help you get the money you’re owed from patients and insurance providers can take all the stress off your team’s shoulders, so they can put their time and attention into helping patients who are in the office. There are many companies that offer billing services, but only the Dental Support Specialties team promises to get you the money you’re owed while treating your patients with respect and building positive relationships with dental insurance providers.

One simple thing that causes many practices to lose money is mismanaged dental billing, particularly with insurance. Insurance is becoming an increasingly important part of dentistry, and without the proper knowledge of how to handle the billing, you could literally be letting thousands of dollars slip out the door every month.

Insurance is becoming an increasingly important part of the healthcare market, particularly for dentistry. For many practices, choosing to be out-of-network with providers simply isn’t an option anymore, and this brings about all the responsibilities of dealing with insurance companies and reimbursements. Of course, one of the first things you need to handle tends to be a stumbling block in itself: insurance verification. Simply making sure your patients are covered and for how much often turns into a huge time waster for your staff when they could be helping multiple patients or getting your office organized. Here at Dental Support Specialties, we would be happy to take this off of your plate, not only giving your staff more time, but also securing a steady cash flow into your practice. (more…)

You’ve used a dental answering service for a while now because you were having issues covering your phones at all the times you needed, and while it’s great that more calls are being received, your answering service still leaves a lot to be desired. When a patient calls, it’s extremely obvious that they aren’t talking to your practice, they can’t get their questions answered, and they usually end the call frustrated without scheduling an appointment, which directly impacts your practice. You still need an answering service, but isn’t there one that can do a better job of actually becoming part of your practice?
At Dental Support Specialties, that’s exactly our goal. We’ll not only answer your phones, but we’ll also make sure your patients always feel like they are talking directly to you. (more…)

It can be a challenge to keep everything in line with how your office’s front desk manages the billing aspect of your practice — but a smooth dental billing process is crucial to getting you paid on time (or at all). Having a system that runs like it should can ensure your office gets the full benefit of providing excellent dental care and working with insurance companies at all.

It takes time to find the right staff members for your practice. From interviews through training, the process could take weeks, or even months. In the meantime, you could be missing valuable patient calls if your office is understaffed. New patients especially will move on to the next practice if their call goes unanswered, or they have to leave a message. This is where a dental answering service could help your practice, and here is how Dental Support Specialties can help!
