    Navigating Treacherous Waters of COVID-19
    It is still unclear as to what the future of dentistry will or will not resemble. One thing is for sure - anything and everything as concerns changes in administrative as well as clinical systems will have to start with the patient in the chair and radiate outwards. Remember, it’s the patient’s benefit plan and not yours. Insurance companies do not tell you how to practice dentistry or treat the patient - yet they do determine what is and is not payable. Now more than ever, dental insurance reimbursement needs to stay in its place.
