Each room in our office is fully computerized, allowing us to store virtually all your information digitally. The software we use is from the Bridge Network, and allows for comprehensive visual charting, scheduling, and record keeping.
So what does this mean for you?
Improved financial records: With all transactions electronically linked there is less chance for communication errors to occur. These records also permit easy future reference for patient income tax purposes, communicating with insurance companies, “warranty” type issues, etc.
Improved claims submission: The majority of insurance companies accept electronic submission of claims. This allows for quicker submission of claims as well as an improved way of tracking claims once they have been submitted. With this process we often receive a real time response from the insurance provider informing us immediately what the benefit coverage is for the submitted claim. The detailed level of accounting the software provides also allows us the opportunity to catch payment errors from insurance companies and make sure you are receiving the benefits you deserve.
Improved dental history and treatment planning: With the use of photos, digital x-rays, and advanced computer charting, a comprehensive record of your oral health and treatment is maintained. Treatment plans are created and can be printed off along with educational materials so patients know exactly what their treatment will involve. This also aids in communication with specialists and insurance companies as records can be printed or electronically transferred to them without loss of the originals.
