Medical billing & Coding is the process of submitting and following up on claims to insurance companies in order to receive payment for services rendered by a healthcare provider. The same process is used for most insurance companies, whether they are private companies or government-owned. Medical billers are encouraged, but not required by law to become certified by taking an exam such as the CMRS Exam, RHIA Exam and others. Certification schools are intended to provide a theoretical grounding for students entering the medical billing field.
Intraoral Cameras allow patients to better understand the condition of their teeth by seeing a video or picture from inside their mouth. The bright LED or halogen light sources of these cameras help the patients see what the doctors see, also allowing doctors to diagnose fractures that could never have been seen by the naked eye.
Digital imaging or digital image acquisition is the creation of digital images, typically from a physical scene. The term is often assumed to imply or include the processing, compression, storage, printing, and display of such images.In dentistry, this technology allows doctors and patients to view images of teeth, gums, etc. in real-time. This saves time and is helpful to communicate the condition of the patient and allows them to make informed decisions regarding their health care.
TELESCOPIC LOUPES (Surgical Telescopes)
The dentist performs most of his dental procedures while wearing a pair of funny looking glasses called surgical telescopes. These powerful glasses have magnifiers on them, allowing the dentist to see fine details that would go unnoticed to the naked eye.
Magna Dental uses software to provide electronic documents for items such as charting, to eliminate the need (or waste) of paper.
DIGITAL X-RAYS (Digital Radiography)
Digital radiography is a form of x-ray imaging, where digital X-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film. Advantages include time efficiency through bypassing chemical processing and the ability to digitally transfer and enhance images. Also less radiation can be used to produce an image of similar contrast to conventional radiography.
All lasers work by delivering energy in the form of light. When used for surgical and dental procedures, the laser acts as a cutting instrument or a vaporizer of tissue that it comes in contact with. When used for “curing” a filling, the laser helps to strengthen the bond between the filling and the tooth. When used in teeth whitening procedures, the laser acts as a heat source and enhances the effect of tooth beaching agents.
