Dental Trick or Treating

November 20, 2009

For the third year, Dr. Lisa Fox, Dr. James Norwood and Dr. Patrick Wilson of Colorado Kids Pediatric Dentistry implemented their Halloween candy buy-back program at the office. Far surpassing any of their previous efforts, this year drew in 1,040 pounds of candy – that’s over a half ton of candy, or the equivalent weight of a cow or baby elephant.

Accept Credit Cards? Make Sure you are PCI Compliant to Avoid Potential Fines

PCI stands for Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (www.pcisecuritystandards.org). For the most part, PCI focuses on protecting credit card numbers, and compliance with these regulations are required of every merchant that accepts credit cards as a form of payment. The main impetus of the compliance regulations is to deter identity theft. Keep in mind that dental staff members are often privy to patient’s date of birth, social security number and credit card numbers. In the wrong hands, this information makes your patients easy targets.

While February seems distant now, there’s actually no better time than this month to register for the eighth annual Give Kids a Smile Day program during National Children’s Dental Health Month. The CDA is recognizing the month as always by organizing Give Kids a Smile Day on Friday, Feb. 5, 2010. Give Kids a Smile Day is a nationwide event that provides children from low-income families with free dental treatment and education. It is a vehicle to not only treat children but to also draw attention to the struggle that many families face for basic dental care.

Medicaid Provider Rate Cut Another 1%

October 30, 2009

Earlier this week, Gov. Ritter announced new budget cuts in response to the state's September 2009 revenue forecast, which projected an additional $270 million budget shortfall for the 2009-2010 fiscal year. Again, many state programs - ranging from higher education to corrections to clean energy to healthcare - were impacted.

As Colorado's fiscal crisis continues, healthcare providers, including dentists, have been hit with another Medicaid rate cut. The new 1% cut is in addition to previous rate cuts of 1.5% in Sept. 2009 and 2% in July 2009. The latest provider rate cut will take effect on Dec. 1, 2009.
