You’ve heard about TruDenta’s life-changing approach to dentistry, but you’re still somewhat hesitant to move forward with the system. As with any investment, you probably have some questions. Your practice is your livelihood—you’re not just going to blindly invest in a new treatment system. With that in mind, we figured we would answer the top five questions dental professionals have about investing in TruDenta.
1. Do I have the ability to get medical reimbursement?
Yes, absolutely. At TruDenta, we recently formed a strategic partnership with a medical specialty network called Dedicated Sleep. Because they’re contracted nationally with in-network health plans, our partnership allows TruDenta doctors to gain access to medical reimbursement options when treating sleep conditions such as sleep apnea, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder, and cone beam.
This partnership is a game changer. Not only does it help you increase your revenue and expand your scope of treatment, it also allows you to increase patient case acceptance rates—meaning you won’t have to keep referring your patients out to help them find relief from chronic pain. And don’t worry about filing insurance claims—we also provide medical billing supervision, guiding you through the reimbursement process to ensure you’re completing the proper steps to get maximum reimbursement.
2. I’m going to spend a lot of money up front—will I see a return?
Our patented diagnosis process ensures that you only treat patients that can benefit from TruDenta. Those patients are often suffering from chronic, painful conditions and are eager to resolve symptoms that other doctors haven’t been able to address. Additionally, 97 percent of doctors are successful with TruDenta—why shouldn’t you be one of them?
As part of a medical specialty network, you can also see much larger reimbursements for treating certain conditions. In many cases, reimbursement rates are 2-3 times higher than the national average on claims you would get paid on. TruDenta can add at least $100,000 to your practice in the first year—and some practices add more than $1,000,000 per year from TruDenta alone!
3. What if it doesn’t fit the speed of my orthodontic practice?
We sometimes hear this question, but there’s no reason to be concerned.
TruDenta’s equipment is sent immediately to you, and training is provided instantly, so you can get going as quickly as you are able. Orthodontists begin using local pain management of TruDenta on almost every patient within the first few weeks of implementing the system.
4. What if someone on my staff is skeptical about TruDenta?
You can handle initial skepticism by explaining that we work with a number of practices that are seeing large returns on investment, with patients whose lives are forever changed because of TruDenta therapy. A practice that is willing to go through training will ultimately be successful with TruDenta. In addition, all TruDenta equipment and treatment modalities are FDA-cleared, and are used within a tailored treatment plan to address your patients’ individual symptoms.
5. Does it require doctors to be present at all of the patient therapies?
Because our treatment approach is therapeutic, after training is complete, approximately 90 percent of the work can be completed by support staff. This ultimately frees up your time, increases your productivity, and dramatically improves your non-doctor production.
