Author: Dr. Luisa Schuldt
This interactive course provides a valuable opportunity for participants to gain hands on experience with a range of intraoral scanners.

Insurance Company Know How and Fee Guides

Recognizing that the ODA Suggested Fee Guide is an important part of running a business both ethically and economically, this session is designed so that dentists can accurately and effectively interpret the Guide. Participants will hear best practices in choosing the correct procedure codes, fee development and communications with both patients and third parties.

Record Keeping

Presented by: Greg Anderson

Professional, ethical and legal responsibilities require that a complete chart and record documenting all aspects of each patient’s dental care be maintained. A detailed chart accurately records the patient’s dental condition when first presenting at the office, assists and supports a proper diagnosis and treatment planning, and provides a clear description of the patient’s ongoing care. Good records are also the dentist’s best defence in the event of a formal complaint or lawsuit. In this presentation, RCDSO representatives offer guidance and practical advice in understanding the dental record keeping requirements in Ontario.
