Hi Billingbilling,

I don't have experience with Dental Billing. So unfortunately, I could not help. But I can see that the post has been read 12 times but no response yet from anyone in spite of the fact that we have a lot of experts in the group. So, I would think you should hit it straight to get good help on this forum.

Please post the actual question you have about dental billing so that people can share their ideas. Or if you are offering dental billing business to people in this forum, please mention that. I don't think you can get good help by asking if anyone has experience with Dental billing. JMHO.

Good luck.

I do have dental billing experience.  Like Sriran_Sub suggested it is best to post the actual question so that someone can answer.

Medical billing requires diagnosis-based documentation, and there are numerous codes available for bone grafting, implant surgical reconstruction, TMD, sleep apnea appliances, and other oral problems and diseases. Emulating the “medical model” in your record keeping will be an important first step in confident coding. Among the standardized forms and procedures that you will need for successful claims are:

Medical claim form CMS 1500
ICD diagnostic codes showing the condition, disease, or symptoms
CPT procedure codes to specify your services
Written SOAP reports (Subjective complaints, Objective exam findings, Assessment, and Plan) of medical necessity because claims are subject to review. SOAP reports should include such medical model elements as medical history and review of systems, social history, history of present illness, exam and plan, as well as other essential elements of patient diagnostic and reports.
