Even More Add-On Features in AireO2!
Last week, we introduced a few of our favorite capabilities in AireO2. Believe it or not, there are even more incredible add-on features in the platform that can improve efficiency and ease of use!
There’s no need to set up a new system to get those patient payments coming when you take payments directly through AireO2. With integrations on our front-end payment and ledger functions, the platform keeps a running track of what has been collected and what is owed.
Seamlessly set up a referral-management system with other providers in your area. This third-party system is integrated for use, so both you and the other providers will need to have access to this to be able to utilize the system. You’ll even be able to receive and send referrals of patients to other providers in your area using AireO2’s address book.
Custom Form Building
Do you have intake forms that you love? Would you like to be able to track who fills these forms out and where they are in the process? Add these forms into your system and house them as electronic documents that can be sent to your patients!
Are you prescribing medication or conducting oral surgery? This feature allows you to do so online! Only dentists allowed to order DEA-scheduled pharmaceuticals will be allowed to register. A third party completes an outside verification process during setup.

Medical Billing in the Dental Sleep Practice: Opportunities in the Vivos Integrated Practice
According to the American Dental Association, dentists are expected to screen for SDB as part of a comprehensive patient evaluation. The evaluation of these patients (history and physical exam, radiographs, CT, etc.) is billable to and payable by both medical insurance and dental plans.
Testing and Diagnosis
While the diagnosis of OSA can only be made by a sleep physician, in most states the dentist can assist in the diagnosis by ordering and/or administering a home sleep test (HST). In those situations, the HST is billable and payable by commercial medical insurance to the administering dentist.
- APPLIANCE THERAPY: Several therapies incorporating Vivos appliances are billable to and payable by medical insurance, including the Vivos Guide, the DNA appliance, and the mRNA/mmRNA mandibular advance appliances.
- ADJUNCTIVE THERAPY. The most common adjunctive therapy provided by VIPs is physical (Oromyofunctional) therapy. All of these valuable services commonly have medical coverage.
As a patient completes treatment, an assessment of MMI is made. This re-evaluation of the patient is billable to medical insurance. Future routine care visits to follow the patient are also billable.
Want to learn more? Dr. Farrugia will be teaching a two-day medical billing course/workshop at TVI on August 5 and 6, 2022. For more information and registration, visit www.cezoom.com/registration/?conf=1230.
