COVID-19 and Your Dental Practice

If your dental practice is located in the United States, there is a high probability that “business as usual” is anything but “usual” right now. We wanted to share with you how APEX Reimbursement Specialists is working tirelessly to help support all of our dentist clients and ensure that revenue is maximized and uninterrupted during this difficult time. 

COVID-19 and Your Dental Practice 

Most recently, the American Dental Association suggested that dentists postpone all elective procedures for three weeks and instead leave schedules open for emergency dental care. This will allow dentists to see emergency patients that otherwise might go to the hospital emergency departments and provide the most pressing care. This will also help to limit the spread of COVID-19 in your community and in your dental practice. The ADA also created an informative FAQ guide for dental providers struggling to determine the best way to serve patients while staying healthy for the duration of the pandemic. 

Additionally, the American Academy of Periodontology has created COVID-19 resources that can be utilized by general dentists and specialists alike. Their tips include ways to protect your workforce, including screening patients for symptoms of acute respiratory illness before entering your practice, using the proper personal protection equipment (PPE), encouraging sick employees to remain at home and adjusting your hours to include telephone triage and follow-up with patients before and after they visit.

How We Are Helping
