OMS Logistics was created to provide turnkey oral surgery services to large dental practices and Dental Service Organizations (DSOs). The trend of offering multiple specialty services in the general practice is becoming common and patients prefer a convenient one-stop shop. This creates an opportunity for new revenue growth in the practice.

Oral surgery has unique coding and billing challenges. Also, the acquisition of the surgical and anesthesia armamentarium is costly and requires specialty expertise to set up and operate to insure patient safety. OMSL has developed a proprietary EHR (Electronic Health Record) that interacts with the host’s dental record to manage the pre-op evaluation of all patients undergoing general anesthesia as well as a comprehensive controlled substance (DEA) management program.

Here are some frequently asked questions.

The average dental office refers out 10% of their annual revenues in oral surgery services. This number does not include anesthesia services that only an oral surgeon can provide. Offering an in-house service allows you to capture this lost revenue

In order to determine if you can benefit from this service, a needs analysis needs to be completed to determine your case volume, available space, available times and overall practice size.

A contract is executed between your practice and OMS Logistics that defines the business relationship. OMSL provides independent contractor (IC) OMS to work at your practice. Your practice is responsible for treatment planning, authorizations, billing and collections. OMSL will provide a highly credentialed OMS, an entire surgical team, all the surgical armamentarium as well as all the ambulatory general anesthesia equipment.

The practice must supply all disposable surgical supplies, and medical gases like oxygen and nitrogen. Practices are responsible for the costs of dental implants and biologicals. On the day of surgery, one administrative employee should be available to register and discharge patients.

The host office must credential the OMS at each location and each TAX ID number. This insures that payments are made directly to the host office.

No supplemental insurance is required. Each OMS caries their own professional liability insurance of a minimum 1 million/3 million. OMSL carries a worker’s compensation policy for the surgical team of assistants

OMSL works on a percentage of adjusted production. By contract a net daily minimum is required as a guarantee to cover the scheduled day or a cancelled day with less than 7 days notice.

Scheduling surgical patients is different than general dentistry. Depending on the number of surgical operatories, two to four patients could be scheduled per hour. With IV sedation, each patient will require that a driver accompany them so an abundant waiting area is needed.

OMSL will provide coding and treatment planning sessions for the GP, hygienists, and dental assistants to synchronize the process
