Dentists and Dental Care
The affiliated dentists of Bright Now! Dental treat thousands of patients each year. And because comprehensive business support services are provided by others, dentists spend a lot less time worrying about paperwork and a lot more time caring for patients. With a focus on continuing education dentists keep up to date on the very latest in treatments and technology.
QualificationsAll of the dentists of Bright Now! Dental or affiliated offices have a DMD or DDS degree from an accredited school and must pass the state board for licensing in the state in which they are practicing. In addition, we employ a 3rd party to conduct a thorough background check that verifies:
3) Valid CPR certification
4) No egregious complaints or suits against them
5) No criminal background
6) Valid license from DEA for dispensing medication
In order to maintain their license each dentist is required by law to obtain approximately 15-30 continuing education units per year, provided in-house by their affiliated dental group.
ContractingAll Insurance carriers require that a dentist accepting their insurance sign a contract with them. With 150-200 different kinds of insurance, filling out 150-200 sets of paperwork would be a daunting task for an individual dentist to undertake. Our centralized resources allow all our dentists to be contracted with a multitude of insurance carriers.
