By Clinical Director of Education, Dr. Mayoor Patel

Education is the key to success! This has never been more true and I will always emphasize this. As a dentist you have already gone through a lot of schooling, but in order to be successful, learning should never stop. Once you become established, you should be looking for ways to add value to your practice. A great way to do this is through the addition of services that can significantly enhance your patients’ quality of life. By transforming your dental practice into a sleep apnea and pain/TMD treatment center, you can differentiate your practice, add new revenue streams, and do more for your patients than ever thought possible.

In the constantly changing landscape of dental sleep medicine and pain/TMD treatment, Nierman Practice Management’s education program is available to keep you on your toes and help you remain up-to-date with the latest developments, advancements, and best practices. Let’s take a look at some of the top reasons you should join the Nierman Education Program.

Led by a Team of Accomplished and Successful Sleep Practitioners

When completing continuing education, you don’t want to just pick anyone. At Nierman Practice Management, our team of sleep practitioners are some of the most accomplished and successful within the field. Our education faculty includes Diplomates, past presidents, and board members of major organizations of dental sleep medicine and pain/TMD treatment.

Each member is respected for their innovative scientific contributions, passion, and experience in guiding and mentoring practices to succeed. For our dental sleep courses, every educator currently treats sleep patients every week and is knowledgeable about the keys to building a successful dental sleep medicine practice-- what better way to learn but from someone who is in the trenches living and breathing what they teach?

As the Clinical Director of Education, I am a Diplomate with multiple boards in Dental Sleep Medicine and Craniofacial Pain/Orofacial Pain. I also coordinate the sleep apnea course content and share the latest research findings amongst the Nierman Education Faculty to ensure consistency and cohesiveness. My motivation is that we can offer our patients so much more and I want you to experience the same success that I have--and get more patients treated!

We Offer Cross-Coding to Further Enhance Your Practice

Headed by Founder and CEO, Rose Nierman, we offer the most renowned cross-coding course in the United States. Rose Nierman is the author of the first cross-coding manual for dental practices, and also launched the first software for cross-coding and medical billing for sleep apnea, TMD treatment, and implants. She is a true pioneer and has educated more dental practices in implementing dental cross-coding and practice management for these services than any other group in the world!

Attending a Nierman Education program means you and your team will learn from the best when it comes to medical billing and cross-coding. You can breathe a sigh of relief knowing you are receiving the best education possible for running a successful practice.

The Entire Dental Team Will Be Involved

When it comes to incorporating dental sleep medicine, and TMD treatment in your practice, having your entire dental team involved is essential to your success. With Nierman’s Education Program, each member of your staff will learn how to provide these services according to their position. Hygienists will learn how to screen for these conditions, increasing your number of cases, while assistants, office managers and billers will learn how to properly file and schedule this information, maximizing your efficiency and reimbursement.

Getting Comprehensive Knowledge from Sleep Physicians

A main goal of ours is to facilitate cohesiveness with our medical colleagues. By having well respected physicians lecture to our dental group, we can provide improved knowledge and understanding of what our medical peers expect from us. It is important, as dentists, to be in a position to understand patient symptoms that may be suggestive of an issue that might prevent our treatment from having better outcomes. With this knowledge we can refer the patients back to their respected healthcare providers for further treatments.  By networking and building relationships, you can gain referrals and provide proper treatment for your patients. It's a working partnership that is essential to growing your practice in dental sleep medicine and TMD treatment.

At the end of the day you want your dental practice to stand out, and what better way to do that than by integrating dental sleep medicine,TMD treatment, and cross-coding. In this competitive world it is necessary. So, what are you waiting for? Take the next step and help more patients by completing continuing education with the Nierman Education Program.
