New AAOMS Online Course Offering - Medical Terminology and Oral Facial Anatomy 101

February 3rd, 2011

Registration is now open for a brand new online course offering on anatomy and terminology. Medical Terminology and Oral Facial Anatomy 101 is designed to provide one with basic knowledge of OMS anatomy, physiology and terminology to enhance one's ability to participate in the AAOMS Basic, Beyond the Basics and Advanced Online coding courses. In addition, Medical Terminology and Oral Facial Anatomy 101 will set the foundation for the increased medical terminology, anatomy and disease process knowledge that will be demanded by the new ICD-10-CM coding system that becomes effective October 1, 2013. While the new coding system does not officially replace ICD-9-CM for a couple of years, it is imperative that OMS coding and billing staff begin preparations for the transition now by taking this preliminary step. The course will also be beneficial to OMS anesthesia and surgical assistants and other OMS clinical and office staff that are involved in patient care, as well as to residents and dental students just starting out in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.

If you would like to:

  • Communicate more effectively with patients, vendors and referral sources;
  • Build or strengthen your knowledge base for your coding skills;
  • Prepare for the transition to ICD-10-CM; and
  • Represent the practice with authority

This is the course for you!
