Tips on avoiding administrative errors in the dental practice

I have just returned from the American Association of Dental Office Managers (AADOM) annual meeting in Orlando, Fla. It was a great few days filled with friends and timely information. If your dental office manager isn't a member of AADOM, you really should check out everything this great association has to offer. You find out more information about AADOM by clicking here.

While I was in Orlando, I had the chance to catch up with Dr. Charles Blair, who is an expert in coding for the dental practice. We chatted about the recent coding changes and what dental practices can expect in 2014. We also talked about ways that dental practices can do some simple things to avoid some very common errors. Click below to watch my video interview with Dr. Blair.

    The information you published was very helpful. I'm going to participate in the next annual meeting and become a member of AADOM association.

    1. Glad to hear! I look forward to seeing you at next years meeting in San Diego.

  2. I plan to become a dentist in the future, so this is all important stuff I need to know. I don't want to have any errors when working on someone's mouth. I will have to follow your advice to make sure that nothing bad happens.

  3. This was super helpful to see how to avoid these kind of mistakes. It's so important that the dentist takes every safety precaution possible. I'm so glad that I found a dentist I can always trust!
