Orthodontist William Fay, DDS, sees patients in offices in South San Francisco and American Canyon, California. In addition to several other professional organizations, William Fay, DDS, belongs to the American Dental Association (ADA).
The ADA recently announced a partnership with Wonderbox Technologies to launch a proprietary credentialing service.
The service will facilitate easy credentialing information by enabling dentists across the country to enter their information into the ADA’s database, where it can be accessed at any time by various health care payers. This effort is put in place to reduce the workload for payer networks by eliminating the need to fill out lengthy paper applications for providers.
A separate Web address will be given to payers, employers, hospitals, and third-party administrators, so they can each have their own portal to access the ADA Credentialing Service. The versatility of this database also does away with the burden of having to individually contact and follow-up with dentists in an effort to grant them credentials. The ADA says that its service will provide information that normally would have taken weeks to obtain in a matter of mere minutes.
