The ADA’s new Locum Tenens and Dentistry guide
discusses how dental benefit plans should be notified and what information is needed to be provided to plans, information on billing and additional insurance considerations when locum tenens dentists are employed. A locum tenens is a person who temporarily fulfills the duties of another. A locum tenens dentist is a dentist who works in the place of the regular dentist when that dentist is absent. In addition, an archived webinar
, Locum Tenens Dentists: Opportunities Abound, features a dentist who needed a replacement doctor and the dentist who provided locum tenens services.
