ADA Webinar on PPO contracts set for July 26

For dentists, their team members and state dental society staff with questions about signing contracts with preferred provider organizations, the ADA is inviting them to register for the July 26 webinar, “Signing the Contract: Understanding PPOs.”

Hosted on the ADA’s Center for Professional Success, the session will feature a brief update on today’s dental benefits market as well as covering what to know before signing a contract and common issues reported to the ADA among contracted and noncontracted dentists. In addition, participants will hear how to receive assistance in either case.

The webinar is among the many tools the Association is rolling out for dentists on third-party issues.

Leading the webinar are Dr. Dave Preble, vice president of the ADA Practice Institute, and Dennis McHugh, manager, ADA Dental Benefit Information Service.

The webinar is scheduled for 12 p.m. Central time, and is available for no fee. Registration information about the PPO webinar is available on the Center’s website.
