What You Need To Know About Dental X-ray Attachments



Academy of Dental Practice Careers specializes in Dental Front Office Administration and Software Training.  Dental Front Office Training Site   This webinar is part of ADPC's online training to educate and inform students about Dental X-ray Attachments and Narratives.

This 50 minute recorded presentation has been created to help dental insurance billers understand x ray attachments. It has been specifically designed for people with little or no clinical experience to better recognize which x rays and other documents are necessary when submitting insurance claims.

  • To begin with, billers need a basic knowledge of the different types of dental x rays, their definitions and codes, and how they are used.  In the first part of this screen cast we will  review these items plus, show examples of poor quality images that should never be used.
  • In the second part of this screen cast we focus on which procedures need to have x rays and other documentation attached when submitting a dental insurance claim form. We will also show some common dental situations along  with their accompanying radiographs.
  • In the last part, you will be guided step by step through the actual attachment process. First, we will talk about management software systems and how they communicate from the back office to the front. Then you will see how to navigate through four widely used software programs, Dentrix, Open Dental, EagelSoft and SoftDent.

Realize, it is not the biller's responsibility to interpret  or diagnose the patient's x rays. It is however, their responsibility to pick the best image and supporting information that represents what is being billed to the insurance company. This presentation will give you the necessary understanding of this process.
