Peabody Dental Implant Practice Sends Office Supervisor to Insurance Training

PEABODY, MA--(Marketwired - February 26, 2015) - The office supervisor for Contemporary Dentistry and Implantology, a Peabody dental implant provider, recently completed an advanced training course on insurance, billing and scheduling.

The two-day course was designed to educate dental offices on how to help their patients get the most out of their insurance benefits. Contemporary Dentistry and Implantology's front office assists patients in setting up appointments and scheduling payments.

Contemporary Dentistry and Implantology sets up pre-treatment estimates so that patients understand the full cost of treatment. The pre-treatment plans, which are also sent to the insurance companies, help patients prioritize and log their dental work.   

Dr. John Argeros, owner of Contemporary Dentistry and Implantology, said the training gives the practice a better handle on how to work efficiently with insurance companies to provide patients more coverage for their treatments.

"Our office supervisor, Cindy, has brought this new information into play already, helping our patients get the most bang for their buck," Dr. Argeros said. "Patients have told us how much they appreciate our new insight into their insurance plans."

Dr. Argeros, who is a graduate of Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, has served the Peabody community for more than 35 years. Contemporary Dentistry and Implantology offers All-on-4 dental implants, implants for dentures, crowns, bridges, veneers, teeth whitening, sedation dentistry and, most recently, endodontics.

Dr. Argeros began incorporating dental implantology into his practice in the 1980s. His experienced and well-trained staff uses the latest technology to serve patients through paperless dental management software, CT scans, digital radiology, intra-oral cameras and CAD/CAM restorations. Contemporary Dentistry and Implantology uses the I-Cat, a Cone Beam Computerized Tomography scanning system that shows a complete scan in just nine seconds.

Dr. Argeros is one of a few hundred dentists in the world who holds a certification in dental implants from the American Board of Oral Implantology/Implant Dentistry. He also is the former president of the Massachusetts Dental Society of Anesthesiology. In 2009, Dr. Argeros earned the prestigious Fellowship in the American Academy of Implant Dentistry and was also appointed to the review board for the academy's publication, The Journal of Oral Implantology. He is a member of the Massachusetts Dental Society, North Shore District Dental Society, Academy of Osseointegration, American Dental Society of Anesthesiology, American Dental Association and holds a Mastership in the International Congress of Oral Implantology. Dr. Argeros also has provided restorative dental treatment at the North Shore Medical Center Union Hospital since 1979.

Dr. Donald Plourde is a graduate of Merrimack College and Tufts University School of Dental Medicine and is a member of the Massachusetts Dental Society, North Shore District Dental Society and the American Dental Society. Dr. Plourde focuses on restorative dentistry and is certified in the Bicon, 3I and Branemark implant systems. He joined the practice in 1990.

Dr. Stephen Sozanski joined the practice in 2014. Dr. Sozanski is a 1981 graduate of Tufts Endodontic Program and recently moved from a practice in Newcastle, Maine. He had been with Contemporary Dentistry and Implantology for 10 years before his time in Maine. Dr. Sozanski will be available to patients on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
