Creative diagnosis: A new dental skill?
Dr. Jeffrey Camm
Fircrest Children’s Dentistry
There is no doubt that the dental profession is under assault from insurance companies — reduced reimbursements, decreased benefits and diminishing coverage for some procedures are all issues we have to face in our practices. Because of this, we all face financial pressures and threats to our bottom line. In response to these issues, I believe I’ve noticed an increase in the skill of what I call “creative diagnosis.” I hope this is not a trend for our profession.
