Dental is different– and we know dental.

DentalWorks USA focuses exclusively on managing worker’ compensation dental claims, which tend to be less understood than other types of physical injuries. We serve self-insured employers, third-party administrators and insurance carriers active in workers’ compensation. All of our Care Coordinators have clinical backgrounds in dentistry. They ensure the appropriate treatment is recommended, and that it relates directly to the specific work injury. We streamline the entire process for efficiency and cost-effective- ness, including scheduling, clinical oversight, authorization and coordination of all treatment.

DentalWorks USA accesses a national network of General Dentists, Oral Sur- geons, TMJ Specialists, Endodontists, and Periodontists. These dental pro- fessionals provide proper care and treatment to injured workers.

Since 2012, we’ve been making the job of Claims Professional easier. Our clinical expertise and exceptional service leads to superior outcomes. Here’s why you‘ll want to work with us:

  • We notify the claims professional within 30 minutes of receiving a referral, guaranteed.
  • We get injured works scheduled for appointments within 24 hours of initial referral, guaranteed. In most cases, we are able to locate providers less than 10 miles from the injured worker’s location.
  • We assign a Dental Specialist to every case, and provide clinical oversight for appropriate repairs and improved outcomes.
  • Our providers know all workers’ compensation guidelines and procedures.
  • There are no hidden charges. Pricing is easy to understand and consistent both in and out of network.
  • Treatment does not happen until you authorize it.
  • We manage claims throughout, from the first injury through Maximum Medical Improvement (MMI).
  • We can provide treatment coordination, peer reviews, and Independent Medical Evaluations. Plus we can take over a case at any point in the process.

We realize dental claims don’t occur with the same frequency as other workers’ compensation injuries, and is not as well understood.

Some claims professionals allow injured workers to be treated by personal or local providers. This is where expensive overtreatment and unnecessary services can occur.

Our Care Coordinators have clinical backgrounds in dentistry, and make sure that only services appropriate to the injury are allowed.

We have achieved substantial annual savings through the clinical oversight programs of DentalWorks USA.
