Alex – Insurance Coordinator
Alex has been handling insurance with Dental Innovations since 1998. He is detail-oriented and a strong advocate for patients’ rights when dealing with insurance companies.
Most dental offices have a front desk employee who will submit your claim to your insurance company with no further action. Alex is a full time dental insurance coordinator who has almost 20 years’ experience in this field. He stays on top of what is going on in the dental insurance industry and takes continuing education classes in order to help our patients maximize their benefits. He will even work with the state’s insurance commissioner office should he need to appeal a denied dental claim. This is going above and beyond what most other offices can provide.
He is an avid reader, loves barbecue, and enjoys spending time with his three children and grandson.
