  • Advanced Imaging Services: Requirements to Ensure Eligibility for Reimbursement

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits Includes a Live Web Event on 11/10/2021 at 1:00 PM (CST)

    Advanced imaging services have received significant attention over the past 10 years. Providers of such services as CT scans are required to have specific accreditation in order to receive reimbursement. While these requirements have been in place for some time, beginning Jan. 1, 2022, another set of requirements will be implemented. Appropriate Use Criteria (AUC) was created by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to ensure beneficiaries are receiving the most appropriate imaging service for their clinical situation. This 90-minute webinar will discuss requirements of both advanced imaging and AUC, correct code and modifier reporting as well as impacts to reimbursement. Code: WCW211110

  • Build a Team that Rocks

    Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits Includes a Live Web Event on 10/19/2021 at 1:00 PM (CDT)

    To take a practice to the next level, well-defined systems and proper training must be in place. When team members understand the “why” behind what they are asked to do, the practice runs more efficiently and smoothly. When all the team members recognize their purpose, they will work harder together to achieve the desired goals. This 90-minute webinar will review the importance and skills of creating the ultimate customer service experience for patients to produce a happier, motivated team and loyal, lifelong patients. Participants will learn how to understand what patients are thinking and how they process information to help increase case acceptance. Most offices have a backdoor problem, and discovering how to close it will take the focus off pursuing only new patients and help the practice’s numbers grow. Code: WPM211019

  • Surgical Management of Nerve Injuries following Ablative and Dentoalveolar Procedures - On Demand Access

    Contains 6 Component(s), Includes Credits

    The incidence of developing post-traumatic trigeminal neuropathy (PTTN) has been reported to range from 0.45% to 70% of injuries involving the inferior alveolar and lingual nerves. Based on ambispective clinical trials, no phenotypic presentation predicts outcome of microsurgery. In fact, microsurgery has only chance benefits. This 60-minute webinar will focus on the non-surgical management of PTTN. The pharmacologic therapies for acute and late-phase PTTN and their limitations, location-based treatments and alternative pain management strategies will be presented. Code: WCE210623R

    Damage to nerves during maxillofacial ablative procedures or dentoalveolar procedures can lead to significant functional deficits, which may include anesthesia, tingling, dysesthesia, electric sensations or allodynia. Microsurgical nerve repair techniques have been developed to improve the environment in which the nerve endings heal, providing a better chance for functional recovery. This 60-minute webinar will cover the techniques and outcomes of microsurgical nerve repair using nerve allografts and conduits. Technical and procedural expertise will be shared through case studies and procedural videos.

    Learning Objectives

    At the conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:

    1. Identify situations where peripheral nerve reconstruction will benefit patients. 
    2. Discuss how to optimize outcomes in the surgical reconstruction of nerves during ablative procedures. 
    3. Review surgical knowledge on the approach and repair of trigeminal nerve injuries and reconstruction.
