Auditing has become a big business and with AI we really need to up our game.

Dentists get complacent about their clinical recordkeeping.  Usually, students write me a book, but after two years of working under the pressure of dealing with so many issues during the day, they start to Text Message their notes.  During this course, we will look at real-time information from companies that do audits for insurance companies. You will also learn what you can bill and how to never take no from them if they down code or change a code.
