Welcome to SMB Digital University… Our mission is to provide dental practices with unique and complete instruction in successful medical billing protocols through an online media. We have constructed modular content that will help you build success with medical billing in your practice.. These modules contain the same great information that is available in Successful Medical Billing live courses. The narrated video format allows you to start/stop/resume the content whenever you like with unlimited viewing for the duration of your purchase.
Specific, individual areas of interest may be pursued with our INDIVIDUAL MODULES. Modules are grouped together to form our COMPLETE COURSES. These COMPLETE COURSES facilitate comprehensive learning at either a FUNDAMENTAL or ADVANCED level. Support for students of our online cirriculum is also available through phone consultation or our Claiming Wheels program. Whatever your interests or needs, SMB Digital University has you covered.
CEs are available for our courses. CE credits are issued to the registered dentist. To receive CE credits, you must complete the viewing of all video content of the course and pass the test at the end of each module. One CE certificate is issued for each purchased course or module.

Approval by the Florida Board of Dentistry does not imply acceptance by a state or provincial board of dentistry.
