What Is a Dental Biller?
A dental biller is in charge of preparing a dental patient's bill, ensures the medical bill is correct, send bills to patients and follows up to ensure that payments are made. To be a dental biller, you must pay special attention to details and be willing to learn dental terminology.
Some jobs as a dental biller don’t require any education other than a high school diploma, but more employers are choosing to hire billers who have some background or training in medical billing. Courses to learn dental billing can be found online or at vocational schools, and training takes only a few months.
Expected salary and job opportunities
The average salary for a dental or medical biller is around $30,000. Most dental billers will work in dental offices, but there is also the option to start your own dental billing business as a subcontractor for several dental offices, or a manager of other dental billers.
