Why get trained?

1) Fluoride varnish application twice a year reduces cavities by 38% in children.

2) FREE 1.5 CME and CNE credits for all providers in your office (including a FREE lunch)

2) Increased office revenue ($26 per application in Massachusetts); treating 5 children per day
would result in $31,980 net revenue

 

What makes this training unique?

A trained dental hygienist will “adopt” your practice to help you get started and provide personalized technical assistance until you are providing the Medicaid billable fluoride varnish to your patients.

The training is intended to:

· train physicians, physician assistants, and nursing staff through hands-on practice

· assist administrative/billing staff with reimbursement procedures

· transform office flow to make adding the service easy and profitable
