Work Smarter, Not Harder

  • Credentialing

    Lightwave ensures dentists are in-network with payors by providing credentialing and re-Credentialing activities for every practice.

  • Insurance Negotiations

    We leverage the collective group of dental partners and overall patient volume to maximize reimbursement and aggressively negotiate higher, customized fee schedules with payors.

  • UCR & Payor Mix Analysis

    We maximize reimbursements with annual evaluations of fee schedules based on market data. Creating an in-depth payor mix analysis for each practice optimizes its in-network plans based on payor reimbursement, patient volume, and patient demographics.

  • Practice Support

    Lightwave identifies solutions to A/R-related challenges by providing online and onsite practice-specific training. We work with each practice to streamline their revenue cycle process in order to maximize overall collections.
