Administrative Efficiencies Summit

Administrative Efficiencies Summit banner image

The Administrative Efficiencies Summit (AES) is led by the ADA Council on Dental Benefit Programs.

The goal of the AES is to identify practical solutions for reducing the administrative overhead of dental practice, so that dentists can continue to focus their attention on patient care. The AES brings together representatives from varied sectors of the dental community, including dentists, dental benefit plans, dental practice management system vendors, clearinghouses and financial institutions.

Administrative functions such as use of electronic funds transfer (EFT) for claims payments, obtaining complete and accurate eligibility and benefit verifications, coordination of benefits, deciphering the varying requirements for attachments on claims submissions, and the process of credentialing are examples of business processes that create burdens for many dentists and their practices.
