You may think to yourself that it wouldn’t be important to learn about dental anatomy and procedures yourself, and certainly is unrelated to handling dental insurance. However, that assumption is certainly wrong. It is actually very important that you have a solid grasp on the basic dental anatomy, as well as the common procedures and issues related to oral health.
Understanding tooth identification, anatomy as well as the most common oral diseases will provide you with the necessary information to properly understand dental insurance, dental imaging, record keeping, and patient issues. In fact, being able to answer a patient’s concerns with confidence and knowledge is priceless. It will not only help ease a patient’s worries or help you to get them the help that they need, but it will make you feel confident and prepared for handling dental insurance.
