Improve Your Oral Surgery Practice’s Revenue Cycle and Bill with Confidence
Every oral surgeon understands the challenges that come with coding and billing the varied oral surgical procedures. Coding some of these oral surgical operations such as prosthodontics, maxillofacial surgery, and tooth extraction requires an in-depth knowledge of dental implants, nerve repositioning, and bone augmentation, etc. While dentistry is more of general oral practice, oral surgery is a specialty field that handles all the complex and more demanding procedures.
Like every specialty in the field of medicine, oral surgery calls for a competent coding and billing service that will help the practice remain afloat in business. This means that every oral surgery practice should pay keen attention to the kind of medical coding and billing services they receive. At Fortis Medical Billing, we prioritize in delivering value to physicians who have lent preference to our billing & coding services. We strive to achieve 100% compliance with accurate charge capture & patient billing, intricate procedure coding, denial elimination initiatives, and multi-tiered appeal process, to mention a few.

Our Medical Billing Services for Oral Surgery Practices and Practitioners
While oral surgery billing is complex and confusing to a newbie medical coder, we find it a part and parcel of our job description to help clients beat deadlines as far as revenue and reimbursements are a concern.
Our Oral Surgery Services
Coding and billing
Our specialist medical billers are well versed with the entire scope of oral services and their respective codes. Some of the procedures that we code and bill include the diagnosis and treatment of:
- Chronic facial pain disorders
- Benign cysts and tumors
- Dysgnathia (incorrect bite)
- Dento-alveolar surgery
- Medical splint and maxillofacial implants
- Surgical treatment of sleep apnea
Whether it’s auditing the codes transcribed from the oral surgeon or correcting errors in the billing software; it’s advisable to always leave the job for a qualified and experienced professional. Many times, in-house coders are trusted to code and bill for their physicians and while this often works, certain specialties like oral surgery can prove more demanding to them. When this happens, and with no one to direct them, errors can occur and this can be detrimental in the long run. This calls for auditing which we’re always ready to tackle regardless of the workload.
Revenue Cycle Management
Due to the low reimbursements fees and stiff competition within the profession, it’s always necessary for oral surgery practitioners to keep a close eye on the cash flow. Our approach and intentions to streamlining patient payments are so honorable, and we’re always ready to help our clients by sharing our thoughts on this. To ensure that there is an effective revenue cycle management in your practice, we’ll work with the data you have and try as much as we can to balance overhead with the current production.
