Tip of the Week

Dentists should read all notifications from plans in a timely manner and if action is required on the dentist’s part, the dentists should take action by the plans’ stated deadline to avoid issues and negative consequences. For more information, please refer to the article on page 2 of the February 2018 CDA Update, Dental plan correspondence — it’s not all junk mail.
