Ensure a meeting of the minds
It’s important that patients understand their financial responsibilities for treatment that is covered – and not covered – by their dental benefits plan. Be sure to discuss treatment plans, alternatives and costs with your patients. And, obtain patients’ written acknowledgement of the discussion and that they agree with the treatment plan and understand the costs.
