Failing Before Starting: When NOT to do Endodontic Treatment

Credits: 1.5
Cost: Free
Time: 8:00 PM ET

It’s a fact: perfect endodontic treatment can sometimes be unsuccessful. Unfortunately, the lack of healing can often be attributed to an inadequate preliminary diagnosis or an improper prognosis assessment. Dr. Berman will systematically review the many variables that should be taken into consideration before the bur ever hits the tooth, including endodontic case assessment, periodontal concerns, tooth restorability, and the detection and prediction of the presence of root fractures. After this presentation, you will never look at pending endodontic treatment the same way again.

At the conclusion of this course, participants should be able to:
• Describe the variables that exist prior to endodontic treatment which may contribute to non-healing.
• Understand the variables that may be present, which may decrease the prognosis for a tooth requiring endodontic treatment.
• Discuss the reasons for the lack of endodontic healing based on an improper prognosis assessment.
• Describe the subjective and objective findings of root fractures as they may relate to the tooth and associated periodontal structures.

Top 8 Mistakes With Dental Insurance

Dental insurance can be one of the most frustrating aspects of working in dentistry. The rules and the process can be onerous and outright unfair.
However, the worst issues with insurance, the ones most commonly cited as major problems are not an issue with the process itself. The main problems lie in how we react or treat the process, which makes it far harder to understand and we get worse results (less reimbursement) due to a lack of understanding.

This session is designed to help you overcome the most common mistakes with dental insurance that are causing a lot of the problems most offices are having.

Are you ready to have an easier time with insurance AND to get better results?

Objectives:
Understand the Common Failures with the Insurance Process
Learn What to Avoid
Increase Efficiency and Results
