Henry Schein, Inc. (Nasdaq: HSIC) today announced that Practice Booster®, Dr. Charles Blair & Associates, and American Dental Support, LLC, the publisher of Coding with Confidence, were recently acquired by eAssist Dental Solutions. eAssist is the nation’s largest dental insurance and billing service platform, providing remote and patient billing services to over 2,000 dental practices.
“We are very excited about joining the eAssist family,” said Dr. Charles Blair. “Working with eAssist will allow Practice Booster® to grow, both in audience and in capabilities. For example, we are excited to create a smartphone app for Practice Booster®, and with eAssist’s help we can now turn that idea into a valuable technology for our subscribers.”
Dr. Blair, the founder of Practice Booster®, will continue his work helping dentists to receive 100% of what is rightfully owed to them by insurance companies. His Coding with Confidence, Administration with Confidence, and Medical Dental Cross Coding with Confidence books and digital tools, which are considered to be the premier resources on dental coding information, will continue to be updated and published annually. The Practice Booster® website will be updated and improved to include new tools, and the Code Advisor, Resource Center, Call Support Center, and Insurance Solutions Newsletter will all continue to be available to Practice Booster® subscribers.
“Every dental office should have copies of Dr. Blair’s coding books and digital tools available to their team to appropriately code and bill for the procedures they have performed,” said Dr. James Anderson, eAssist CEO and founder. “Practice Booster® is the number one resource for dental insurance coding, and we are the number one solution for insurance and patient billing. It just makes sense for our companies to work together to provide a comprehensive solution for dentists in the US.”
“Moving forward, we are developing new and innovative Coding and Practice Booster® tools, further expanding the line of resources. eAssist is committed to being THE definitive source for billing, coding, and administrative support for dentists and their teams,” says Dr. Anderson. “Having the ability to continue to provide and expand upon Dr. Blair’s knowledge and tools is another way eAssist can bring peace of mind to dentists.”
In June 2021, Henry Schein, Inc. (Nasdaq: HSIC), the world’s largest provider of health care solutions to office-based dental and medical practitioners, acquired a 70% ownership position in eAssist, which will help advance Henry Schein’s mission to offer best-of-breed solutions to help dental practices operate more efficiently and profitably, freeing up practice resources to focus on patient care.
